Past Updates

UB’s new recruitment management system is expected to go live January 29th, 2007. Plans to link from UB’s main web page, UB Business and MyUB are in progress. The project is very close to completion, with only one last round of changes left to be done by the vendor, PeopleAdmin. PeopleAdmin is adding a set of qualifying questions that will pre-screen applicants. Training on the system is scheduled to begin during the week of January 16th, and an applicant tutorial is expected to be completed within a similar timeframe. HR will provide additional training sessions on as as needed basis.
