HR: Section 6.3 selection summary
The selection summary may be used if a complaint is filed regarding the search. Thus, the summary must be specific and defensible.
- Complete this form for all searches whether or not a second interview was conducted.
- Explain why you chose the preferred candidate over the other top scoring finalists (by name) by comparing and contrasting their qualifications (this may include years or type of experience, education, knowledge, or training, responses to interview questions, reference checks, etc.).
- It is not sufficient to state “John Doe did meet/not meet the needs of the department or was/was not the most qualified person”.
Below is an example of a Selection Summary that compares and contrasts the recommended candidate’s relevant experience and overall qualifications to that of the other finalist.
Reasons for hiring Jane Doe:
- Extensive background with the establishment of a security card system. Although others had some background Jane’s experience includes implementation and maintenance of the system. Mary was more geared to the use of system. Thomas had use experience and minimum maintenance experience.
- Jane has extensive experience with security systems. Although Mary and Thomas had some experience, 3 and 2 years respectively, Jane had 6 years experience.
- Jane has experience in the investigation process. Mary and Thomas also had this attribute but during the interview process Jane provided a much clearer explanation of the process.
- Jane has had much more involvement and experience education, training and explaining the processes associated with a security card program than Mary and Thomas.
By providing top notch answers, that align with the criteria and requirements of the position, during the interview process Jane showed the best combination of skills required for the position.
