Planning Your Recruitment

The time you invest in up-front planning pays huge dividends in the time it takes to fill a vacant position and how well your new employee meets your mission needs.  Talk to your HR consultant about what you have to accomplish and the skills you need in your new employee. Together you will look at who is out there and how best to recruit them.  The Roles and Responsibilities Guide 52KB can give you a better understanding of your responsibilities in the hiring process.

Where competition for talent is intense, candidates may need some additional encouragement to take your job.  In those situations, budget permitting, you may be able to offer recruitment, retention and/or relocation incentives, student loan repayment, or an increased salary rate.  Federal employment has many perks to attract top talent.  In addition to our challenging work assignments, we offer terrific benefits!  Consult the Hiring Incentives Guide 80KB to learn more about available incentives.  Talk with your HR consultant about these options to determine which you can leverage.
