Application Process

The university provides an online job search and application process for regular, non-academic employment as well as for our in-house temporary service, UTemps.

If you are looking for an academic position, visit the Faculty Recruitment website or directly contact a college or academic unit.

Completing your Application

Dependent upon your affiliation with the university you will need to take different steps to apply for jobs.

Current employees and contingent workers MUST apply through the internal job posting site within Workday. Simply type “Find Jobs” into the search bar to navigate to the list of open jobs.

If you are a current employee or contingent worker and you apply through the external site, the Hiring Manager/Recruiter will NOT be able to move your application forward. Instead, your application will be canceled and you will be asked to reapply through the internal job posting site.

Former employees, former contingent workers and individuals who have never worked for the university will apply through the external job posting site.  Here are the steps to create your candidate profile in Workday.

  1. Apply > Click orange “Apply” button
  2. Enter Email and Password or click Create an Account
  3. Create an Account > Follow prompt for email and password 

               Password must include:

  • alphabetic character
  • lowercase character
  • numeric character
  • special character
  • minimum of 8 characters

       4. Quick Apply > Applicant will start the process of applying by uploading their resume. 

           IMPORTANT:  Applicants must upload a resume in order to be considered for employment.

After your resume file has been uploaded, click Next

      5. My Information > This section pre-populates from uploaded resume attachment (verify for accuracy); complete the missing sections.

      6. My Experience > This section pre-populates from uploaded resume attachment (verify for accuracy).

IMPORTANT: Scroll to the bottom of the page, this is where you will find a second Upload section.

Always refer to the job posting to determine if additional materials are required in order to qualify. It is common for university departments to require a Letter of Interest in addition to a Resume and 3 References.

There are two ways to complete this. Either multi-select the files to be attached at the first upload, or continue to click the Upload button after each file is uploaded.

Applicants will not be able to upload additional files after their application is submitted.
