Why are we changing to an electronic application system?
The new UM Jobs brings with it a host of benefits for all users. The new electronic UM Jobs will allow us to more efficiently track all activities related to the recruitment, interviewing, and hiring process as well as remain compliant to all state, federal, and international employment laws.
When will this change go into effect?
On April 4, 2011, we will begin the roll-out of the new UM Jobs to applicants and the campus community. On that date, we will begin to conduct all new recruitments through this system. How frequently your department recruits and hires new employees will determine how soon you are able to discover the benefits of the new UM Jobs recruitment and hiring system!
How will this affect me as a member of campus?
The new UM Jobs will change the way anyone applies, recruits, interviews or hires while improving the ease and functionality of the hiring process.
