Log in to Internal Applicant Records (IAR)


Internal Applicant Records (IAR) is the electronic system Hiring Managers use to view Human Resources records for candidates who are most current employees. Giving hiring managers this tool eliminates the need to travel to the Office of Human Resources and Development (OHRD) to see relevant information in the internal candidate’s personnel file.

Please note that at this time not all internal employee files will be immediately available electronically. OHRD staff continue to work to ensure all 22,000+ employee files are available in an electronic format by 2012.
