New UI jobs system means changes for job-search and application processes

The University of Iowa has launched a new system for managing advertising, applications, and searches for open staff positions, including most health care jobs.

The change affects how candidates apply for both Merit and Professional and Scientific openings, including nursing positions, other non-faculty patient care roles, and various regular staff jobs at UI Hospitals & Clinics. It does not affect processes for faculty, postdoc, research intern, or temporary staff positions, which will be added to the new system in spring 2019.

The new system introduces features including:

  • Ability to use LinkedIn or Indeed profiles or uploaded resumé/CV files to complete job applications
  • Job alerts that notify users about new postings that match their interests
  • Options for sharing job postings with friends and contacts
  • Automated search-status updates once users apply for jobs

As of Sept. 10, current regular staff should access job postings through Employee Self Service rather than the jobs.uiowa.edu site. Look for a new “Apply for Job Opportunities” link in the “Performance/Career” section of the “Personal” tab.

Non-employees and temporary staff should continue to use the jobs.uiowa.site, which has been newly redesigned to feature additional info about the university and the Iowa City area. They will need to create new profiles before applying for jobs.

Anyone seeking a faculty, postdoc, research intern, or temporary staff positions also should start at jobs.uiowa.edu. Job seekers with existing system profiles can continue using them to apply for these positions.

The UI Hospitals & Clinics nursing careers page continues to introduce nursing practice opportunities and connect nursing professionals with recruiters, but nurses searching for current openings should go to jobs.uiowa.edu (or Employee Self Service if they currently work at the university).

    • Not opposed to change, but I agree that this is not a user friendly site. I would like to know the pay grade as well as if the position is merit vs. professional. I have to go to the classifications page to cross reference. Maybe it is still in the works.
