Supplemental Questions

Consider the use of supplemental questions in your job posting. Supplemental questions may be used to screen or gather additional information about applicants in order to make a better decision about whom to interview.

  1. A supplemental question may be created using the minimum qualifications to help eliminate candidates who don’t meet them.
  2. Applicants may not answer supplemental questions. If you are using supplemental questions to gather additional information, your posting should include a statement to the effect that “completion of supplemental questions is required for consideration”.
  3. If you decide that the completion of supplemental questions is required for consideration, only applicants answering those questions in full should be included in the applicant pool.
  4. The Compensation Analyst and the Director of Institutional Equity may consider a supplemental question as a means to determine the best qualified candidate.
