Hiring Exceptional Talent

Wage (Faculty and Staff) Services


Due to COVID-19, we are not currently processing I-9s in person. You will be contacted directly by HR with instructions on uploading your documents directly into Workday.

The Student, Staff Wage, and Faculty Wage Team (SSF) works with hiring managers and Business Partners to help recruit and hire exceptional candidates. We can help you post positions in Workday, and provide support and tools for hiring managers who need assistance in screening, sourcing, and selecting the best qualified talent.

Recruiting and Hiring of University Staff and Wage Employees

For Managers

Hiring managers can reach out to their designated HR Business Partner—who can help you connect with the SSF team—to receive assistance in posting positions in Workday. For general HR questions and in-person Workday assistance, please attend one of the I-9 open sessions detailed below. Members of our Inquiry (AskHR) and Talent Support teams will be in attendance and ready to help.
