  1. Why do you exclusively accept electronic applications? Why don't you accept paper or emailed resumes?

The advantages of an electronic application system benefit both applicants and hiring departments. The electronic application system provides more search options for applicants, more timely updates to job postings, and the ability to apply for additional jobs without having to submit a new application.

In addition, applications to Job Openings can be processed in a more expedited fashion and the hiring departments can more efficiently screen applicants to fill positions.

  1. What happens after I upload my resume during the application process?

When you upload a resume, the electronic application system will attach it with the application form that you will be asked to fill out following the successful uploading of your resume.  You need to fully complete the online application form to be considered for employment.

  1. What information will I be asked to provide on my application?

You will be asked to provide person information such as name, address, email address, phone number, etc.  You will also be asked to provide information about your education and previous employment, as well as contact information regarding your employment history and references.  Please gather this information before beginning the application.

  1.  Do I need a valid email address for my application?

YES, all applicants must have a valid email address.  We will correspond with applicants via email for a variety of reasons.  Also, if you are hired at the University of Kansas, all applicants must have a valid email to initiate the background check process.

  1. What happens to my application after I submit it?

Once you apply, you will receive an email confirming submission of your application. All applications are reviewed and screened against position qualifications.  Hiring managers at the department will contact candidates who best meet the position requirements. Please understand that the review process takes time.

  1. Who do I contact if I am having technical issues when applying online?

Please read our Troubleshooting Q&A. If you have not found your answer there, contact the Help Desk during business hours via phone at (785) 864-8080.

  1. What do the terms "exempt" and "non-exempt" mean?

Exempt positions are salaried, are paid based on doing the job rather than the number of hours worked, and are not eligible for the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Non-exempt positions have an hourly rate of pay and are compensated at the overtime rate for hours worked in excess of 40 per week.

  1. What if a salary range is not listed for the job opening?

Some departments do not include a salary range for open positions. The department will address the compensation for the position during the interview and offer process.

  1. How frequently do you update the job postings?

Job postings are updated daily with the addition of new positions and the removal of closed and/or filled positions.

  1. A job has been posted for a number of months. Is it still open?

If a position is on the website, it is still open and the hiring manager is seeking candidates.

  1. Do jobs remain posted after the position has been filled?

No. Postings are removed once a job has been filled.

  1. Can I update an application once it has been submitted?

Once you have submitted an application, you will not be able to change the information. The only information that can be changed is information in your profile (for external applicants), such as Address, Email Address, and Phone Number.

  1. Do I have to re-enter my information every time I apply?

If you have already submitted an application, the information you entered will populate your new application so you do not have to re-enter the same information every time you apply.

  1. How long does it take to fill a position?

The recruitment process takes an average of 60 days for most positions.

  1. What if I am looking for a faculty (teaching) position?

Faculty positions are posted online.  Please follow the specific instructions for applying for these positions as additional information will be needed for your application to be accepted by the department.

  1. What if I am looking for a Lecturer position?

Lecturer positions are posted online for most departments.  Most of our Lecturer positions are posted as “pools.”  This means that applications are accepting on an on-going basis.  Then as needs arise for positions, applicants are interviewed to fill the opening(s).

  1. What if I am looking for a post-doctoral position?

Post-doctoral positions are posted online.  Please follow the specific instructions from the department that has the opening as additional information may be needed for the application to be accepted by the department.

  1.  How do I receive an offer of employment from the University of Kansas?

As stated earlier, all applicants must have a valid email address on their application form as offers of employment are electronically sent to an applicant’s email address.  Once you receive the email message, you will be required to log into your applicant portal and “Accept” or “Reject” the offer of employment.
