Step 2: Connecting with Your Onboarding Specialist

One of the primary functions of Auburn University’s Onboarding Center is to assist new employees through the onboarding process. Once a candidate has been selected and their hiring proposal has been finalized, a new employee will be assigned to an Onboarding Specialist.
