5 p. 

An effective recruiting program is one that locates the best candidate available, makes an acceptable job offer, and retains the new employee for at least eight years. Successful recruiting results from a department chair's commitment to a people-oriented administration. By being aware of the career paths of faculty members, the chair can anticipate vacancies and formulate plans before the need arises. The recruitment process, which should employ a search committee, involves several steps: (1) receiving notification of a vacant position; (2) receiving authorization to recruit; (3) determining salary; (4) organizing the recruitment effort; (5) screening applicants' files; (6) conducting campus visits; and (7) making an offer. It is important that all applicants be treated fairly. Once the position has been filled, it is the responsibility of the department chair to make sure that the new person is retained through orientation, professional development, counseling, and mentorship. This document includes a nine-item bibliography and an order form for related research reports available from the Association for Study of Higher Education including the full report upon which this summary is based.
