Recruiting, Interviewing & More


Cabinet approval of all open positions is required before recruitment advertising can begin. Please see your function vice president. As a professional courtesy, all internal applicants who meet the position’s qualifications are expected to be interviewed.

Human Resources will do all advertising for staff positions. Advertising in special publications or resources should be discussed with the Human Resource Director.

Background Checks

  • A criminal background check is required for all staff and temporary positions. Whitman College uses Sterling Talent Solutions to conduct the criminal background check. Turnaround time from ordering to receipt of completed check is generally 2-4 days, but could take longer. Human Resources will email the applicant who has been offered a position with the release form to authorize a background check. 

Employment Offer

Please contact the Human Resources Office to obtain a salary range before a verbal employment offer. All employment offers are contingent on a criminal background check and a pre-employment physical (if required).
