  •  How do I apply for a position at Edinboro University?

    If you have applied for a position, log on to the Employment Opportunities page after the application deadline and you will see notations on the site indicating the progress of the respective search. 

    • What is your hiring process?

    The University uses a committee driven search process to fill vacancies.  Once the application deadline has passed, the qualified applications are forwarded to the Search Committee chair for evaluation by the committee.   The Committee will use a pre-approved rating instrument that is based on the qualifications for the position to score the applications.  The applicants that receive the highest comprehensive score are invited to the University for an interview.   The applicants interview scores are ranked and a recommendation to hire is forwarded to a pre-appointed Hiring Administrator.  The Hiring Administrator will contact Human Resources with their recommendation.  If you are a successful candidate, you'll receive a phone call from Human Resources confirming your continued interest in the position and a proposed start date.   The official offer of employment will be sent from the President of the University.   Candidates not chosen for employment will receive a letter from Human Resources notifying them that the search is complete.
