Interviewing, References and Job Offers

Interviewing & Hiring Heading

The interview should be viewed as a tool that is used by both the employer and the candidate to determine if the opportunity presents the best match of person and position.

Reference Checking Header

Before any offer of employment is extended, the final candidate(s) should be notified that a reference check will be done and that the information will be used in making the final hiring decision. Typically, the reference check is conducted by the hiring manager. Check with your HR Administrator with any questions about this process. More information about checking references can be found in the Guide to Interviewing & Reference Checking. (pdf)

Job Offer Process Heading

When you have selected your finalist for the position, you may make a verbal, conditional offer. In that conversation with the candidate, you can discuss a proposed start date and answer any questions that candidate may have prior to accepting the offer. You will then use “Forward Applicant” to request that your HR Administrator submit a formal offer letter to the candidate through VTHR. More information about checking references can be found in the Guide to Interviewing & Reference Checking. (pdf). MORE...
