Hiring Policy

It is the policy of the Library to recruit, hire, train, and promote employees on the basis of qualifications and without discrimination because of race, religion, color, political affiliation, disability, national origin, sex, gender, or age. This policy applies to all levels and phases of personnel administration such as recruitment, advertising, testing, hiring, training, promotion, transfer, leave practice, rates of pay, selection for supervisory positions, and employee benefits programs.

The Anderson County Library seeks out qualified applicants through a variety of recruiting sources including community organizations and educational institutions. Advertisements may also be placed with the South Carolina Employment Security Commission and in local newspapers and online services.

The recruitment goal for the Library is to find and hire those persons who are most likely to become productive and satisfied employees over a long period of time. To fulfill this goal, the recruitment program is designed to attract qualified individuals to fill Library job openings and provide the Library with reliable applicant sources from which qualified individuals may be placed for each job opening. Applicants whose qualifications best match the requirements of a position are interviewed by the appropriate supervisor. It is the Anderson County Library’s policy not to consider applications and resumes received after a posted closing deadline. Due to the high volume of applications and resumes received for positions at the library, it is not possible to interview everyone who applies.
