"Life in Congress" Webinar: Improve Your Hiring Process

We've never done a program quite like this before! CMF will facilitate a discussion with Chief of Staff Lisa Sherman and District Director Jessica Reed, senior managers for Rep. Susan Davis, who will be presenting their best practices on hiring.

Lisa and Jessica will share the "Team Davis" approach to hiring – a process so impressive that they were recognized for a 2018 Democracy Award for "Life in Congress" Workplace Environment (and had CMF staff and expert panelists saying things like: "Wow - incredible!" and "In a league all their own").

This webinar will include:

  • The benefits of an improved hiring process

  • General tips and recommendations

  • The 10-step Team Davis hiring process

The Team Davis process also includes BONUS materials for you, such as:

  • Example text for recruitment, scheduling interviews, and rejection letters

  • Techniques for sifting through hundreds of resumes

  • Sample writing tests and questionnaires

  • Tips for interviews and reference checks

  • Sample scorecards for objective judging of candidates

Whether you are a new Member hiring staff for the first time, or a 20-year veteran of Capitol Hill, this program has take-aways for all offices!
