Submit Recruitment Request

This quick steps guide demonstrates how to submit a Recruitment Request for Staff and MPP positions through PeopleSoft. Before starting the online recruitment request process, the hiring department needs to have a conversation with the Human Resources (HR) Manager to ensure all aspects of the recruitment plan are in compliance. Before submitting the online recruitment request, the hiring department also needs to have internal conversation about their recruitment plan with their supervisor/manager/dean/VP/Provost, as applicable.

When your recruitment request is submitted in PeopleSoft, it triggers an email notification to HR. Once HR approves your recruitment request, the approvers in your area are notified.
