University support staff and unclassified recruitments on hold in late September
Submitted by Human Capital Services
As part of the release of the Total Rewards information on Sept. 30, new job descriptions and pay grades will be added to the PageUp applicant tracking system, along with minor changes to the position description template. To allow time and resources to effectively implement the improvements, the creation of position descriptions for university support staff and unclassified positions will be on hold between Sept. 19-30.
This will impact the creation of new requisitions for university support staff and unclassified positions that initiate the recruitment process. Please plan accordingly if you have any upcoming recruitments. All position descriptions will be due Sept. 12 in PageUp. These changes will not affect faculty recruitments since they do not require a position description. Therefore, continue with faculty recruitments as usual.
While there is no ideal time for a hold on recruitments, our statistics show that hiring activity is much lower at the end of September. After Sept. 30, hiring managers will have the ability to initiate position descriptions with the new titles and expanded pay grades.
The Human Capital Services team appreciates your patience as we make these improvements.
