Employment Advertising

Before an advertisement may be placed, the Hiring Officer must obtain approval to conduct a search for the position from the Division of Human Resources.

To ensure that staff position openings advertised in the media outside the University are consistent, comply with University policy and with applicable federal, state, and local regulations, and are presented professionally, all advertised postings must have the Affirmative Action Equal Opportunity (EEO) and disclaimer statements www.upenn.edu/affirm-action/.

Recruitment and Staffing is available to assist with wording, format, and media placement.

The cost of advertisement is the responsibility of the department or administrative unit in which the position opening is located.
