Hiring Steps

Expedited Search

Expedited Search for the posting process must be approved by Equity and Access.
If you have identified a specific candidate to hire for a position outside of the normal posting process, then you will need to go through Equity and Access.  You will need to request an expedited search and posting so that you may place the identified candidate into a grant funded position. This is done by sending an email to Cynthia Prado at  Please copy Bobbie Brandenburg at so she can assist and coordinate the request in the university’s applicant tracking system, EASY.     

Please refer to UPPS 04-04-03, “Staff Employment”, Section 4 Recruiting Options for Filling Staff Positions, paragraph 1; “The chief diversity officer and director, Equity and Access must approve exceptions to the provisions of this section.”
