OSCAR provides a variety of tools to help users determine whether an OSCAR-participating judge is hiring.  There are two basic indicators of a judge’s hiring status in OSCAR: (1) a position positing, and (2) the Hiring Practices statement in the judge profile, so prospective applicants should familiarize themselves with both.

Review a Judge's Hiring Practices Statement

Hiring Preferences in the Judge Information Tab

If there is an OSCAR judge that you are particularly interested in but the judge does not currently have an available position posted in OSCAR, you can view the judge's Hiring Practices statement to determine the hiring status.  All OSCAR judges must complete the Hiring Practices section of the judge profile, and the OSCAR Program Office encourages judges to use the Hiring Practices field to include information on their hiring process, including whether they will be hiring, their hiring timeframe, and any preferences for applicants with specific experience or other attributes.

To view a judge's OSCAR profile:

  1. Log into OSCAR and select Search For Positions > Judges from the main navigation to access the Judges List.
  2. Click a judge's name to access the Judge Information tab.
  3. Scroll down to review the content of the Hiring Practices field.
