Resources and

Posting of Position Openings

The University of Pennsylvania requires posting of non-faculty position openings within the University for at least seven (7) calendar days before hiring a candidate to fill the position. Announcements of position openings provide employees with information about opportunities for promotion and transfer. An announcement includes a brief description of the duties and qualifications required. Employees interested in promotion are encouraged to read these announcements regularly and to contact the Division of Human Resources/Recruiting and Staffing.

Position details should be updated through HR Manager. Ensure all areas of the Position Inventory Questionnaire reflect the current position. Once the position grade and classification is approved by the compensation specialist, the position will be posted on the Jobs@Penn website, and you can begin to review applications.  If you need additional information on working with the Applicant Tracking System (PeopleAdmin), visit
