Recruitment Services

The quality of the UMKC faculty and staff shapes the reputation of the university. No activity is more critical than the selection of these individuals. Success in attracting and hiring top candidates depends upon a carefully planned and conducted search process. Every participant in the search process must demonstrate skill and competence in selection processes and procedures and in the application of effective selection tools. It is the job of the recruitment team to see to it that this process is followed.
