How To Hire a Development Officer: From Defining Needs to Ensuring Successful Performance.
This guide is designed to help administrators, search committee members, pastors, and school board members select a school development director. Chapter 1 describes why the hiring process is important. Chapter 2 answers questions such as who is responsible for development. Two styles of development management are described. Prerequisites for hiring are delineated in chapter 3. Directions for forming a search committee are provided in chapter 4. Chapters 5 and 6 describe what kinds of abilities, attributes, background, experience, and personality traits to look for in a development officer and how detailed a job description should be. Chapters 7 through 12 detail where to look for candidates; how to conduct initial screenings, interviews, and reference checks; and how to make a final decision, negotiate an arrangement, and present the new director to the community. Establishing internal accountability for the development process and ensuring growth for the director are described in chapters 13 and 14. Appendices A through E contain an adjusted hiring timeline, a "listening session" description, two sample job decriptions, a resume evaluation form, and an application form. (EJS)
