HR Classification and Recruitment Document System (HR CARDS)



HR CARDS houses NIH standard Position Descriptions (PDs) and related classification and recruitment documents. This system enables managers and HR Specialists to retrieve PDs and corresponding documents to facilitate and simplify the hiring process. HR CARDS provides consistency for the hiring process by allowing for the standardization, streamlining, and expediting of the classification and recruitment process for HR Specialists, administrative personnel and managers.
