New online job resource to debut this month
Princeton NJ -- A new online technology intended to streamline the recruitment process for administrative job applicants and hiring managers will be launched in mid-November.
''Jobs at Princeton,'' which will replace the existing paper-based recruitment process, is designed to provide efficient and accessible recruiting information for both hiring managers and job seekers. Its development represents a joint effort of the Office of Human Resources staffing team, the Office of Information Technology and other University departments.
''The new Jobs at Princeton technology contains modules for applicants, hiring managers and human resources,'' said Vice President for Human Resources Maureen Nash. ''For example, the applicant tracking system will allow HR staffing to improve the recruitment process end to end. This will help us better source, screen, interview and hire a qualified and diverse workforce.''
''One of the key goals of the redesign is to provide the greatest degree of accessibility to information, both for hiring managers and candidates...''
Some of the most noticeable changes with the new Jobs at Princeton will be the ability for hiring managers or administrators to create a job requisition online and for candidates to apply online from any computer with Internet access, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Each page on the site, located at <jobs.princeton.edu>, will have links to content of interest for the targeted audience, making it easy to find related information. Other features include the incorporation of drop-down or cascading menus, which will aid in site navigation.
''One of the key goals of the redesign is to provide the greatest degree of accessibility to information, both for hiring managers and candidates,'' said Greg McGovern, senior manager for human resources staffing, who is managing the project. ''Several departments across the University will participate in the modules for hiring managers in December, with University-wide rollout slated for early 2005. The Office of the Dean of the Faculty is assessing the capabilities of the technology and will participate by phase in the full rollout.''
Jobs at Princeton is powered by technology from PeopleAdmin, which also is used by other members of the Ivy League including Brown, Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania.
