is UNCP's intent to provide current employees promotional priority in
hiring if employees have substantially equal qualifications when compared
to other applicants. "Substantially equal qualifications"
are present when the supervisor cannot make a reasonable determination
that another applicant holds better job-related qualifications. Such
commitment will be accomplished by:
1. Allowing department heads to make a written request that their opening be filled from within their department. If the Director of Human Resources and the department head determine that there are viable applicants within the department, then the opening will be posted only within the impacted department, or
2. Allowing a department head to post an opening within UNCP only, or
3. When an opening is posted outside the University then the "Substantially equal qualification" commitment is to be followed.
Open positions must be announced through the Human Resources Office.
Vacancies must be advertised for five (5) working days if the opening is to be filled within the department or within the University. Vacancies must be publicized for at least seven (7) working days if advertised outside the University. If the position is not filled after the first posting period, the time may be extended and the position reposted at the supervisor's request.
Hard to recruit positions, that are on the Office of State Personnel's Special Entry Rate Inventory listing, may be advertised more widely in newspapers, professional journals, etc. The employing department head may to determine the best method for advertising such a position by working with Human Resources.
The advertisement to be used in classified postings will be reviewed and approved by the Human Resources Department to assure that education and experience are consistent with the State's requirements.
Applications for classified positions must be submitted to the Human Resources Department. The Director will screen all applications after the closing of the posting period, select the most qualified applicants, contact the supervisor regarding the availability of the applications, and will be available to discuss the screening process or applications not selected for departmental review.

1. determine which applicants to interview;
2. assemble a committee to assist with the interviews;

If a position is to be advertised off campus and in the newspaper, the employing department must indicate which papers to advertise in on the Request for Posting Position form.

Additionally, the advertisement will be placed by the HR office on the Jobline; on the HR Web page; with the Employment Security Commission; the Office of State Personnel's Automated Vacancy Management System; and with other State agencies. Departments requesting advertising are responsible for the advertising costs.
