Search Teams and Access to Career Zone Manager Portal

Having a diverse search committee, comprised of various levels, backgrounds and types of employees from both minority and non-minority backgrounds brings multiple perspectives resulting in the best possible candidate pool.

  • If you plan to use a search committee for your opening, ensure that you create a diverse committee.
  • All RIT employees will by default have access to the Career Zone Manager portal application; however, unless you add them to your requisition team, they WILL NOT have access to your requisition and the corresponding applicants. 
  • All employees who should have access to reviewing applicants (including the hiring manager and req creator) should be added to the search team section of the requisition. 
  • If the search committee is not confirmed prior to requisition being approved and posted and members need to be added, you can add them by using the instructions here.
  • You can also email
