3. Conduct your search

Conduct your search as required by the policy Recruitment and Selection of Faculty and Academic Professional and Administrative Employees and any college or administrative unit procedures that may be in place.

4. Removal of posting from Web

If a job close date is entered, the posting will be removed from the Web and moved to an "On Hold" status on that date until notification is received that the position has been filled or canceled.
