New Hires

Welcome to Drake!  Our goal is to provide you with the tools and resources necessary to ensure a pleasant onboarding experience and a successful transition in your new role.

‌‌Before Your First Day

Human Resources - Required Paperwork

Stop by Human Resources on the third floor of Old Main to complete the I-9 process. This is where you can access the I-9 form and list of acceptable document to bring to HR here. Please note, to complete the I-9 process, the legal regulations require you to produce original documents—photocopies will not suffice.

To streamline your onboarding, we have compiled several required forms for you. The forms may be printed and completed prior to coming to Human Resources or you can come to HR and we will provide you with paper copies.

Once you have your credentials, you can access our internal website and visit the New Employee Welcome Center for further instructions and important information about working at Drake.
