If a department would like to add a new permanent position (full-time or part-time), or fill an established position, the request goes through a standardized process for all Provost Centers & Departments. Requests use a Smartsheet form to collect the required job information and manage approvals. 

Job Request Form  

The approval workflow includes your budget partner, PAA HR, and our compensation partner to ensure budget and job details are accurate.  

  • During this process changes may be made to your job details to align with university guidelines for job profiles, minimum candidate qualifications, or other criteria. Your HR Partner will notify you of these changes before the job requisition is created. 
  • Requests that represent incremental headcount (not backfills) are subject to additional approval. 
  • If you need assistance before submitting your request, your HR Business Partner is the best resource. 

The Handbook section Creating and Posting a Job covers job posting requirements, differences between new and reclassified positions, and waiver of posting request. The Tip Sheet here provides checklists for information you will need to include for your Job Requisition and PIQ, as well as the steps you will need to take to complete the process.
