STEP 4 - WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
When a vacancy occurs and approval to hire has been granted, departments will request an eligible-for-hire list from the Human Resources Department. Hiring supervisors or a
delegate will review resumés, cover letters, or applications of the individuals placed on the list and select candidates to interview.
Keep in mind that AHIA receives a high volume of highly competitive applicants each month. Depending on the position, the number of applicants on an eligible-for-hire list can vary from 10 to 100. Prior to reviewing
resumés, department hiring supervisors create a list of qualifications to identify top candidates. This provides the hiring supervisor with a manageable number of applicants to interview. Although many departments have
the same positions, each may use them differently and require different qualifications from the candidates selected for interviews.
