Frequently Asked Questions

A position library is a collection of job descriptions. With Position Management, this is a living library where users can upload and edit job descriptions so there are always approved and updated job descriptions on hand when open roles need to be shared.

Posting outdated job descriptions can actually discourage candidates from applying to your open roles. A good job description is unique to a position and should evolve over time. Revisiting job descriptions each time you hire is an important part of hiring for the reality of the job today. If you post a role as it was the last time you hired, you might not hire the right candidate for the job as it has evolved, and there may be a disconnect between the new hire’s expectations based on the job description and the institution’s expectations for the candida.

Yes. HR leadership has full oversight to determine the access level associated with each user group in Position Management.  

The upload time depends on the number of position descriptions a customer has. PeopleAdmin can partner with customers to schedule an import of position descriptions.

You can set up as many different types of jobs and job titles in Position Management as you would like. Our goal is for Position Management to act as a catalogue of all positions across your entire campus.
