You will receive an email confirmation when the position is approved and active on Employment@Marquette website.

Q: How long can my position be posted?

Answer: The minimum posting period is seven days. At any time after the seven day posting period, you may choose to close the position by logging into the Hiring Manager’s site, by changing the posting status to Close/Remove from Web.

Once the position is closed, it can no longer be viewed by applicants.

Q: When can I begin changing applicant statuses?

Answer: You may begin changing applicant statuses immediately.

Q: What status will the applicants see?

Answer: Applicants will only see a status of “In Progress” until the position is filled. Once the position is filled, applicants will see a status of “Filled.” Candidates can NOT see the applicant statuses used for internal screening purposes.

Q: When can I begin interviewing candidates?

Answer: You can begin interviewing immediately; however, you cannot make an offer to hire until after the seven day minimum posting period has passed. Every effort should be made to give internal candidates preference in the hiring process, provided that internal candidates have appropriate qualifications. When the internal candidate has the qualifications for the position or can meet requirements with reasonable on-the-job training, the hiring manager is expected to interview the candidate.

If the candidate is a current employee, submit the salary authorization form. Also, in the online applicant system, Employment@MU, candidates should be changed by the department to “Recommended for Hire.” If you have not done so already, make sure all remaining candidates are marked either, "Interviewed/Not Hired" or "Department Determined Not Best Match" so that HR will be able to close out the online serch process. Please note, references must be completed prior to making the job offer.

Q: What steps need to be taken to complete the online search process?

Answer: All applicants should have one of three appropriate statuses selected: “Department Detd Did Not Meet Min Quals,” “Interviewed/Not Hired,” or “Recommended for Hire.”
