Hiring 101


DOI Hiring 101 Guide

The Department of the Interior strives to attract and acquire the best talent. HR practitioners and hiring managers aim to collaborate as partners to increase the effectiveness, satisfaction, and overall performance of the talent acquisition life cycle at Interior.

The DOI Hiring 101 Guide was envisioned to serve as a single resource providing practical guidance, recommendations, and best practices for DOI’s HR practitioners and hiring managers during recruitment and hiring processes. This guide was designed and developed to be a ‘living’ resource by a team of representatives from bureaus that came together to form the Hiring 101 Working Group. The guide supports the ability of stakeholders to quickly access relevant information and provides guidance on how to accomplish specific tasks, processes and practices, as well as detailed appendices to support individual topics.

In addition to the guide, the DOI Office of Human Capital and bureau subject matter experts will host regular learning events to assist DOI HR professionals and hiring officials through the hiring process. Check this page often for supplemental resources and upcoming events you can participate in.
