STARS - Hiring Manager


Posting Has Closed

Step 1. Hiring Manager reviews the individual applications that were referred and when the review is completed, change the applicant's status in STARS to REVIEWED. This action records the fact that the review took place. ALL applicants must be in a REVIEWED status before you proceed with the selection process.

During the initial review process, you will most likely place each applicant in one of three categories:

  1. Applicants that you definitely want to interview. - Change the status from 'Reviewed' to 'Interview Pending'. When the interview is completed change the status to 'Interviewed'.
  2. Applicants that have promise and may warrant an interview. Eventually you will have to decide whether to interview these applicants and if so, follow the instructions in the preceding step. If you decide not to interview them and remove them from further consideration, follow the instructions in the following step.
  3. Applicants that you do not want to consider further - change the application status from 'Reviewed' to 'Not Hired'.

Step 2. Interview the applicants of your choice. When the interviews are completed, change the status in STARS for those applicants who won't be considered further to 'Not Hired'.

At this point, the remaining applicants should represent the finalists so change the status on those applicants to FINALISTS. You can also rank the finalists, e.g. 1,2, 3 by using the 'Rank' field on the Change Status screen. Select your reason for selecting this individual from the drop down box. You are now ready to create the Hiring Proposal (HP).

Prepare your HP (Hiring Proposal) by clicking “view” under the Position Title column of your posting located on the STARS view active page. Within this page, click “begin hiring proposal” link under the “status” column.  Then, click “start action” link under the appropriate choice for your position.  You will then search for the correct position description based on the Title/Position ID.

When you find the appropriate position description, click “start action” link, under the position title and fill in the HP. When you are finished, click “preview action” and then submit HP up your management approval chain via STARS.
