EDU 688 EDU688 Week 4 DQ 1 Recruiting and Hiring New Staff (Ashford)
Recruiting and Hiring New Staff. Daresh and Daresh (2013) state that “due to a decline in economic conditions, the job market has increasingly turned to favor the ‘buyers,’ or employing organizations, in many fields, including education” (p. 1). However, recruiting and hiring new staff will always be necessary because of employee turn-around and because the recruitment and hiring process is competitive. Hiring the right people is a critical step toward making the required changes and improvements to a school. From conducting the search to planning and carrying out interviews, all stakeholders’ values and beliefs represented in your school’s vision must be included during each phase of the hiring process.
Initial Post – Reading Chapters 2 through 6 of Daresh and Daresh (2013) will support you as you assume the role of the principal during the recruitment and selection of new school staff. In your initial response:
Assume your values and beliefs also include those of the various stakeholders of your school and, describe the values and beliefs that would impact your decision of who to hire to join your school staff.
Explain all the ways to which a search for a new staff member will be conducted.
Describe how you would carry out interviews and provide a list of up to 10 questions you would ask.
Explain what factors would help you determine who to select. These factors might include the kinds of
responses you would expect from the interview questions, prior experience, demeanor of the candidate, and other traits you deem important.
Guided Response – Respond to at least two peers. In your replies, consider asking questions of your peers about their responses to encourage further conversation. Reflect on your peers’ methods for hiring new school staff. Relate your methods to those of your fellow peers. Evaluate their selection processes and provide them with feedback regarding the potential effectiveness of the processes. Though two replies is the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you including the instructor, before the last day of the learning week. This will further the conversation and provide you with opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real world experiences with this topic.
