Northeastern believes in the importance of investing in our employees and is committed to helping you advance and develop your career. One of the ways we do this is to promote and support internal transfers and promotions. We invite you to meet confidentially with your HR Consultant to explore career interests and options. We also encourage you to visit the Careers@Northeastern section of the HRM website to review jobs that are currently available and posted.
Normally, there is a ten-day window when current employees have the opportunity to apply to new positions and during this period external applicants are not hired. Individuals may search for and apply to open positions by going to Careers@Northeastern. Employees are encouraged to discuss promotion and transfer opportunities with their current supervisor and their HR consultant.
Colleges and departments have overall responsibility for recruiting and hiring their open administrative professional positions. Typically, internal candidates who are selected for interview will meet directly with the hiring manager and department staff. When consideration is being given to final candidates, the hiring manager will normally contact the internal applicant’s current supervisor to provide a reference. Offers of employment will be extended to the finalist by the hiring manager.
Recruitment and hiring for these positions is coordinated centrally through HRM and the HR Employment Representative. Resumes for internal candidates are reviewed first by the HR Representative and, as long as the candidate meets the transfer/promotion eligibility guidelines and the minimum qualifications for the position, s/he is interviewed by the HR Representative or directly by the hiring manager. Depending on the position, applicants may be tested to demonstrate their computer proficiency. When final candidates have been identified, the HR Representative and/or the hiring manager will contact the candidates’ current supervisor for a reference. The offer of employment is made by the HR Representative.
