How do I hire a temporary employee?

Applicant submits application and resume to the pool and you will tell the CFOS HR Coordinator:

  • Name of applicant
  • Date of Hire
  • End Date
  • Fund/Org
  • 2-3 sentences of duties

This information is used to prepare a Hiring Proposal. You, as supervisor, must approve the final document in UAKJobs.

  2. Go to View/Edit Active Jobs - this will pull the one position under your name
