Strategic Initiative Brief: Recruit excellent candidates for new positions


The UC ANR Strategic Initiatives offer a home for strategic thought - drawing on members of the wider UC ANR community and beyond to 1) help people connect and 2) to help them identify and address issues of current and emerging importance.  

Help spread the word for a stronger UC ANR and greater impact.

  • The good news? The very positive news is the state increase in funding to UC ANR's budget. 
  • The challenge? We have to move fast to attract and hire excellent candidates. 
  • If we get it right? If we do this right, we strengthen our current needs, and lay the foundation for future success.

Help spread the word to attract excellent candidates: a three-step plan.

1. Track released positions 

Note that seven to 10 positions will be released each of the next four months. More positions will be released in 2022. Visit UC ANR Jobs for the latest releases.

2. Use your connections to promote jobs 

Research shows many vacancies are filled by people connecting through networks and personal contact. So, share links and news on vacancies through your social media (e.g., LinkedIn; Facebook, etc.), networks, blogs and newsletters, etc. 

Do what you think is best, but you can simply share a link and the name or topic of job(s) being released. Ask people to share with others.

3. Think diversity

Look to share through locations or platforms you might not normally include when sharing the word on opportunities with UC ANR.
