Talent Acquisition


Talent Acquisition

Talent Acquisition provides expertise to attract and engage a high performing, diverse workforce. We partner together with the HR Community & People Managers to enable strategic talent delivery and optimization of talent investment.

We focus upon four critical areas, including:

  • Workforce Planning: proactively identifying talent needs and building candidate pipeline
  • Strategic Sourcing: offering targeted hiring to support Affirmative Action Planning, and position the University as an employer of choice
  • Talent Pool Assessment: leveraging critical selection factors to evaluate fit and engagement level
  • Successful Selection: creating an exceptional candidate experience from reference checks to extending an offer letter

The University of Chicago is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity/Disabled/Veterans Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, age, status as an individual with a disability, protected veteran status, genetic information, or other protected classes under the law. For additional information please see the University's Notice of Nondiscrimination.

Recruiting a Diverse and Excellent Staff
