HR To You

Human Resources is available to help you and your team further understand the personal and operational benefits of working at CSUN, understanding how CSUN works, and making the team experience more enjoyable and productive.  

Invite HR to a regularly scheduled or new meeting to present on a topic designed to help individuals and teams understand and succeed.  We can cover a single topic and provide a Q&A in as little as 15 minutes, or cover related or several topics as needed.  We can also tailor the content and presentation for general or specific audiences (all staff, management, department coordinators, etc.).

To view a listing of the different training we can bring to you, visit: https://www.csun.edu/hr/hr-to-you

Hiring - AdobeSign Request for Authorization to Hire Forms

Prior Vice Presidential approval is required for any new searches and backfills, and only mission critical positions that are vital to meeting the day-to-day operations and are core to the CSU mission may be approved to be filled. 

A streamlined AdobeSign Request for Authorization to Hire form has been developed for each division for ease in routing to the appropriate Vice President. These forms should be used for all positions that need a recruitment or backfill – first time Lecturers (including emergency hires and those with more than a year break in service), Faculty Coaches and Counselors, Staff, MPPs, and Student positions.

Instructions on completing the Request for Exemption from the Hiring Chill form are tailored for your division and the type of position you are hiring, and may be accessed here at: https://www.csun.edu/hr/csun-hiring-during-pandemic.
