How to Apply

Searching for Job Openings

Open positions are available online for prospective applicants to search and apply 24/7 at your desktop or mobile device by accessing the employment web page.  Job listings are posted in real time and are made available to applicants at the time in which they are opened.  Enhance the search experience by utilizing the following tips:

  • Narrow search demographics by selecting the job category you are interested in (i.e., Faculty, Staff, or Student Jobs).
  • Use key words to identify specific positions
  • Filter or Sort by Temporary or Regular (Benefits Eligible) positions
  • Filter or Sort by Posting Date to see the newest postings
  • Note that any posting denoted as a “Pool” accepts applications on ongoing basis and positions are filled as needed.

*Kiosks are available at the Office of Human Resource Management for anyone interested in searching and applying for job openings.

If you don’t find the perfect position opening, interested applicants can create a profile within the Applicant system without applying for a specific position.  Your search history and preferences will be saved for you to access at another time.
