Florida’s Faculty 500 and Interfolio Faculty Search

July 25, 2018 / 2:00-3:00 PM EDT

What’s different about faculty hiring versus staff hiring?

In this free webinar and Q&A with guests from the Human Resources office at the University of Florida, you’ll get a chance to learn about their distinctive faculty hiring strategies and how Interfolio fits in, and their recent adoption of Interfolio Faculty Search to manage faculty hiring across UF.

This webinar is mostly about UF’s story, but includes an Interfolio demo. A large portion is devoted to a presentation about UF’s current faculty hiring approach and their transition to a more strategic talent recruitment model. In the process, you’ll hear about why it was that they concluded faculty hiring was simply a different undertaking from general staff hiring, and sought out the right technology—Interfolio Faculty Search.

You’ll learn:

  • What choices UF has made in their recruitment model to ensure the success of their Faculty 500 initiative
  • Why HR at UF saw faculty buy-in for the technology as a key intervention in improving the faculty hiring process
  • How the experience of applicants and committees fits into their comprehensive strategy around faculty hiring

This webinar took place in July 2018.
