Position Posting and Recruitment

The process for creating a posting is as follows:

  1. Create a position description in PeopleAdmin 7. New positions will be assigned a PSB number to be used on the Hiring Request form. Or modify an existing position description to prepare to create a position posting.
  2. Complete and submit a Hiring Request through the approval chain. Hiring request approval from the provost is required for all searches, internal promotions and temporary appointments of one year or less.
  3. Develop a Recruitment Plan to include diversity recruitment sources. 
    • Classified and nonclassified positions are automatically posted on:
      • University of Arkansas Careers website 
      • HigherEdJobs.com
      • GettingHired.com
      • Indeed.com
      • Arkansas JobLink 
      • Diverse Issues in Higher Education
      • The Job Guide (classified only)
    • Academic Policy 1405.16G on pro-active diverse recruiting requires that departments and campus units identify at least three additional recruitment activities within their respective discipline or field that target diverse populations. Utilizing low/no cost activities such as email Listservs, professional contacts and organizations are recommended.
  4. Decide if a search committee will be used in the process.
    • Search committees are not required and may be convened at different stages of the process.
