The University of Minnesota new employment site is up and running and already it has 1,000 registrants and 198 created job openings. With the new system, applicants now have the ability to conduct a Basic or an Advanced Search. A Basic Search can be by keyword(s) or job opening ID (formerly known as the requisition number). An Advanced Search provides the ability to refine search options. This includes keyword(s), department name, job opening ID, regular or temporary, full-time or part-time, shift worked, and/or pay. Below are some tips for searching the new job site:
- Search by job opening ID, if possible. Using the job opening ID returns the specific job opening only.
- Use the Advanced Search – enter department name, if you know the name of the hiring department.
- Keep in mind that using multiple parameters may limit search results; consider searching by using one search parameter at a time (i.e. all full-time openings, all openings at a given location).
- Use generic key words to cast a broad net for job openings (i.e. cook, business, finance, teaching, research, service).
New system functionality allows applicants to save searches and receive notifications of new job postings that match their search results. Applicants must have entered an email address in the site’s personal application data to receive notifications via email.
