How to Apply for Jobs

Searching for Job Openings

To search for job openings, select the appropriate internal or external applicant link on the Careers webpage.

Job search tips:

  • Use the links on the left side of the listing to filter your results by type of opening, location, or school/unit.
  • Use the Keywords box to search by Job Opening Number, Job Title, or Job Description.
  • To save an interesting job, click the "star" icon to the right of the opening or at the top of the job description.  You can return to your starred jobs by clicking the My Favorite Jobs link at the top of the page.

Creating a Login (External Applicants Only)

If you have an ID from a previous job search, click the Sign In link at the top of the screen; otherwise, click New User and follow the instructions to create a User name and Password.  Be sure to enter your formal name and correct contact information; this will be used for any application you submit.
