2. Requisition for Posting and Advertising

The unit submits a requisition for the position through the PeopleAdmin recruitment system at https://employment.unl.edu/hr.

A position may be posted for recruitment in one of three ways:

  • External – open to everyone, both university and non-university applicants.

  • University employees only – with approval of the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance, the position would be open to all University employees, including those from University of Nebraska at Omaha, the University of Nebraska at Kearney, the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Central Administration.

  • Department Only – with approval of the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance, a search may be limited to those within the department who are current regular part-time or full time employees hired through the regular competitive search process (not a temporary employee).

Positions are normally posted external of the university, a public institution. On some occasions, upon prior approval from the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance, a department may request another form of posting. Departments lacking appropriate representation of ethnic, racial and gender groups may not limit advertising to the department only but may advertise to University employees only. Departments on a "supervised search" status with the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance may not limit the scope of any search without prior approval of that office.

The extent of external advertising and the minimum posting period for recruitment is based on the projected availability of qualified applicants and the number of applicants in the targeted groups (women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities). A minimum of seven calendar days is required for all posted office/service and managerial/professional positions. Exceptions must be approved by the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance.

Human Resources is responsible for placement of advertisements. The hiring unit is responsible for the expense. As long as the position is open, the hiring unit may re-advertise until a suitable candidate is found. Please Note: newspapers will bill your department directly for advertisements.
