  • Including additional comments such as why the position is being created and where funding is coming from (if from multiple sources) can help speed up the approval process and ensure the position does not get "sent back" during the process. If a position gets sent back it must go through each level of approvals again.
  • When assigning compensation it is best to enter an amount that you have budget for, not what the top of the pay range states.
  • Faculty Positions—If you are hiring for an Assistant or Associate Professor, please select the job profile at the Associate level. During the hire it
