This book is a practical guide for anyone involved with hiring in higher education. It is written for busy faculty, staff, and administrators who want to conduct more efficient, fair, and effective searches, but who don't have time to investigate the large body of research on employment selection and communication or search through multiple sources to uncover recommendations established and proven through the years. This book is useful for campus leaders, search committee chairs, and committee members who want to increase their ability to accurately predict a candidate's success at their institution.
