After review, candidates who meet employment criteria are prioritized depending on their qualifications. The most qualified candidates receive the highest priority for interview.
Personnel Services contacts candidates to schedule an interview with a panel of educational professionals who shall evaluate each candidate further and make recommendations to the hiring department.
An initial interview may be followed by any combination of the step below:
An official employment offer is then mailed to the candidate. The candidate should review the offer, contact Personnel Services with any additional questions, sign and return the offer letter to Personnel Services to accept employment with the SCCOE.

The hiring department assigns staff in accordance with the needs of the student programs, considering the preferences and qualifications of staff.
