Term-Appointed Employee Instructions

Hiring aTerm-Appointed, Exempt-level Employee

The Term-Appointed Employee Hire Process expedites the hire and on-boarding process for temporary, exempt level employees. 

All Term-Appointed Employee Job Requisitions will be created in MAJC.  Once the requisition is approved and posted, the department manager will notify the applicant that they can go in and apply to the job. 

The manager will direct them to the MAJC Career Site. The applicant must apply to a specific job in MAJC so it is important that the manager informs them of the Job Requisition title and number.  Once they have applied and uploaded their resume, the job can be removed from the posting page.  


The hiring manager will move the applicant along through the offer process and approvals to expedite the hire process.  For complete instructions on processing a Term-Appointed requisition and applicant, hiring managers should access the MAJC documenation located on the HR Manager website.


Prior to hiring an independent contractor or Term Appointed Employee, the hiring manager must complete the Independent Contractor Policy Questionnaire form, and submit the form to Procurement’s Accounts Payable unit. Procurement will review the form and make an initial determination regarding the classification.  If the independent contractor engagement is approved, Accounts Payable will request a Personal Services Agreement from the hiring department prior to processing any invoices for payment. If Procurement is unable to clearly determine that the individual should be classified as an independent contractor, the form will be routed to Human Resources for review to determine of the individual will be classified and hired as a Term Appointed employee.
