Why are we changing to an electronic application system?
Applicants will find the new UM Jobs to be much faster, more efficient and very user-friendly. The paperless application process will allow applicants to create a user-profile where they can apply for more jobs in less time. The new electronic UM Jobs will allow us to more efficiently track all activities related to the recruitment, interviewing, and hiring process as well as remain compliant to all state, federal, and international employment laws.
When will this change go into effect?
Beginning April 4, 2011, applicants will submit all application materials electronically via the new UM Jobs.
