SERIES CONCEPT

Employment Representatives perform or administer recruitment, 
selection; and referral activities requiring a knowledge of 
University employment policies and procedures, as well as an 
understanding of the campus employment program; and perform 
other related duties as required.

Incumbents interview applicants for employment, transfer, or 
promotion; determine and evaluate applicants education, training, 
experience, skills and aptitudes; administer, score, and interpret 
tests of skills and aptitudes; select and refer applicants to 
suitable job openings; approve rates of pay for new employees; 
counsel and assist employees and departments in solving  employment 
problems; check and evaluate job references; publicize job openings, 
including writing and placing of advertisements; develop and 
maintain recruiting sources; and conduct off-campus recruiting.

CLASS CONCEPTS

Senior Employment Officer

Under direction, the Senior Employment Officer plans, organizes, 
and directs a large employment program for a campus, including the 
supervision of a number of Employment Representatives. Work is 
reviewed in terms of meeting the goals and objectives of the 
employment program.

Examples of work performed at this level are essentially the same 
as given for Employment Officer, but differ in variety and scope.

Employment Officer

Under direction, the Employment Officer plans, organizes, and 
directs the employment program for a campus, including the 
supervision of Employment Representatives. Work is reviewed in 
terms of meeting the goals and objectives of the employment 
program. This class may also be used for the assistant employment 
officer for a large employment program.

Incumbents typically determine emphasis of the program on the 
basis of labor market trends, employee turnover, effectiveness 
of sources, present and future manpower needs, and other 
statistical indicators; recommend employment policies and 
establish or modify procedures; develop and implement a transfer 
and promotion program; develop and maintain sources for management 
candidates; develop and maintain contacts with public agencies and 
community organizations; and perform the most difficult and 
sensitive recruiting such as for management positions.

Senior Employment Representative

Under direction, the Senior Employment Representative performs 
the most difficult and complex recruitment, selection and 
referral activities. Work is periodically reviewed in terms of 
meeting specific goals and objectives.  This class may also be 
used for the head of a campus employment program.

Incumbents typically recruit for positions that are the most 
difficult to fill due to scarcity of qualified applicants or 
because of the level of knowledge and skill required to evaluate 
successfully complex job requirements such as those of professional 
or management positions; develop and maintain recruiting sources 
of national scope; conduct nationwide recruiting efforts; represent 
the employment office in discussions with outside organizations and 
agencies; provide advice and assistance to other Employment 
Representatives on the more difficult problems; and may train or 
supervise other Employment Representatives.

Employment Representative

Under general supervision, the Employment Representative performs 
difficult and complex recruitment, selection, and referral 
activities. Incumbents establish their own procedures within 
broad policies and guides, with work periodically reviewed in 
terms of overall efforts. This is the full operational level 
in the series, with incumbents performing those duties as outlined 
in the Series Concept.

Assistant Employment Representative

Under supervision of a higher level employee, the Assistant 
Employment Representative performs recruitment, selection, and 
referral activities. Assignments are usually more limited than 
those at the higher level, with the primary distinction being 
the degree of independence with which the incumbent performs 
the assigned range of duties outlined in the series concepts.
