OJS Upgrade

The Human Resources Employment team is excited to announce that the new OJS (online job system) launch date has finally been set for March 1, 2012.  The upgrade of OJS will provide many advantages to both internal users as well as external applicants. See just a few of the advantages below:


  • Enhanced functionality to source candidates and screen out applicants
  • Added features that include search committee options, mandatory attached documents, and searchable questions
  • More efficient and effective recruiting process 
The following general information is an overview of the transition timeline. Additional detailed information will be provided to all current OJS users.
  • January 30, 2012: Webinar training available (required for all OJS users and prior to classroom training)
  • Starting January 30, 2012: Hiring Managers need to access each posted position to determine ability to fill by February 29, 2012
  • HR will select a representative from each department/college to be the liaison to ensure department training and timelines are met.  Representatives will be notified by January 30th
  • February 2, 2012: Supplemental classroom training begins
  • As of February 10, 2012: Colleges/divisions need to provide position status report  to Employment Representative
  • As of February 29, 2012, OJS (current) will not be accessible to current users or applicants
  • NOTE:  Job posting information and applications in the current system will not transfer to the new system.  All current job postings will need to be reposted and applicants will have to reapply for any position that is not filled by February 29, 2012

We want to thank everyone for their patience and support during this process. We believe this enhancement will be worth the wait and we look forward to partnering with you as we continue to improve our recruitment efforts.
