All tenure-track searches could result in the hiring of an international faculty. Therefore, it is imperative that all steps during the hire are well-documented so that the college can sponsor the petition for H-1B visa and permanent residency when needed.
The following records will need to be maintained for all tenure-track faculty searches:
Hard and digital copies of position advertisements, including start and end dates of the posting, the title of the journal(s), newspaper(s), and websites where the posting was advertised
Invoices for job posting
A search committee report
A list of all applicants, including the reason(s) why each candidate was rejected (e.g., no Ph.D.)
A list of applicants selected for preliminary interviews (e.g., phone or conference interview), including the reason(s) why each candidate did not advance to on-campus interview
A list of applicants selected for on-campus interviews
An explanation about why the selected candidate was chosen over other finalists, listing the qualifications and achievements of the selected candidate and how these match the required and preferred criteria in the job description
Copies of the selected candidate’s CV, diploma, transcript, and other related professional credentials
