»Internal job application - Effective immediately, we are eliminating the "short" application in PeopleAdmin. Pacific values its employees and our managers understand the advantages of promoting our own employees. Internal applications do not include work history, dates of employment, supervisor information and reasons for leaving. This puts our internal candidates at a huge disadvantage compared to external candidates who complete a full and comprehensive application. HR has posted a document called Applying for Jobs Internally; Considering Internal Applicants which includes tips for applying and interviewing and illustrates the value to promoting internal candidates. Click here for more details.
Email Greg Walters at email@example.com with any questions. »Speeding up Hiring Processes - Managers' Choice - Currently, hiring managers of non-union staff must post jobs internally for a minimum of five days before posting and advertising externally. Effective immediately, managers may now choose to post internally or go straight to an external posting to which internal applicants may apply. Those who post internally only and find someone can hire quickly with minimal expense and promote a valued University employee. If a manager goes externally first, they save five days they currently have to wait for the internal posting period.
The climate survey and our exit interviews tell us that our staff deeply value the opportunity to grow within the University and earn promotions. HR will always encourage managers to look for and hire our own if it makes sense to do so for that particular position. Click here for more details.(4/4/2017)

We encourage you to send your questions, comments or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to respond within a week. (3/27/2017)
» Search Committee Training Hiring managers and search committee chairs and members can maximize their chance of the perfect hire with a deeper understanding University of the Pacific's search process and tips and strategies to find the best person. Additionally, knowing their responsibilities under the University's Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer (AA/EOE) plans if important to their success. The Search Committee Training is designed to do these things. The orientation consists of understanding your role as a search committee member, a review of the applicant tracking in PeopleAdmin, selection criteria, anti-bias awareness, interviewing skills, reference checking, and more. It also fulfills the University's legal compliance requirements under AA and EEO. The training program takes under one hour and Human Resources recommends it for the first meeting of the search committee for the open position in question.

» University to perform a comprehensive internal audit of the Employment Eligibility Verification form I-9. University of the Pacific, in an effort to ensure compliance with federal employment laws, is conducting an extensive internal audit of our Employment Eligibility Verification form I-9 across the three campuses. Pacific is required to have a completed I-9 form on file for all employees. This includes regular full-time and part-time staff, faculty, temporary casual employees and students. The employer will be assessed significant fines for incomplete or missing I-9 forms.
In the next few months, Human Resources will review and identify forms missing or incomplete. HR will notify the employee and request assistance in correcting an error or incomplete information. Please assist us with corrections or omissions as quickly as possible. If you have any questions, Human Resources will provide additional information on the audit process and results when completed.
