Acknowledge Resumes/Vitaes Received

Step 4: Acknowledge Resumes/Vitaes Received

Forms & Documents Required: Letter of Acknowledgment (produced by department.)  Voluntary Self ID form

As resumes and vitaes are received, the Search Chair (or designated support staff) should send written correspondence (using the same common language) to each applicant acknowledging receipt of the application. Included with the acknowledgement letter should be the University’s Equal Employment Opportunity Self-Identification form. It is mandatory that the self-identification form be sent to each applicant. However, failure to return the form cannot be used as a means to reject an applicant.

Because information needed on the Self ID Form is individualized to each specific search, this form is not interactive on the OED website. OED will provide a self-identification form, with a specifically assigned number, directly to the hiring unit upon approval of the RTS form. Applicants may either fill out form and return to OED or fill out their information electronically Self Id Form (a specific search number is required to enter the site).  All information gathered from the returned self-identification forms will be compiled by OED and made available to the search committee chair upon request.  Please send email requests to Nicole Cangey at ncangey@utk.edu The search committee should use the information to help determine the diversity of the applicant pool and to respond to questions listed on the Narrative Summary Form (NS).
