In general, how is the hiring process different in PeopleAdmin for department hiring managers and the processors of requisitions?

The most important change is that PeopleAdmin automates many of the paper driven aspects of the employment application process. Creating and submitting the requisition to Human Resources via PeopleAdmin results in faster processing of employment information. Hiring managers have up-to-date access to their requisitions and are able to review application materials online as it is convenient for them. Jobs are posted through Texas State’s PeopleAdmin in as little as 48 hours from submission, thus giving hiring managers more time to review applications eliminating withdrawn applications.

Applicants apply online directly to the jobs of their choice. Once the posting has closed hiring managers may review these applications and screen each applicant according to their competitiveness. The record keeping aspect of the selection process is made simple and ensures accuracy.
