Q

How can networking be utilized in soliciting applications?h

Answer(s)

A

Collegial networking is a proven method of increasing the applicant pool. However, caution must be used in informing a prospective candidate about a job opening. Please do not use phrases which might lead an applicant to believe he/she has an advantage over other applicants. Phrases like the following would be appropriate: "A position is available at Utah State University in your area of expertise for which you may want to become an applicant. I would be happy to provide you with the job description or website information."

Also, this is a great opportunity to "sell" Utah State University as a great employer.
