Posting a Job

Requisitions to post may only be submitted for existing positions. If a new position needs to be created, you will need to complete the New Student Job Request Form. You will be notified by the SEO office once the position has been created so that you can complete the following steps.

Note: the name and email address of the hiring manager will be added by SEO to each posting so that student's can contact them with questions or to find out the status of their submitted application.

  • Please note that on the Job Information page some fields are required, and some fields will not be enterable. Requisitions to post are intended to post a position as it currently exists or with minor changes to the job description (that do not warrant a change in wage level). Click Next.
  • On the Supplemental Questions page you can add questions that you would like the applicant to complete when they apply for the position. New questions will be reviewed by Human Resources before being approved. You can designate whether applicants are required to answer the question or not. Click Next.
  • On the Applicant Document page you can designate the documents that you want to allow and/or require applicants to upload when they apply for the position. Any documents that you do not check as optional or required will not be an option to the applicant. Click Next.
  • On the Search Committee Members page you can add search committee members (who have Middlebury accounts) by selecting the Add Existing User button and searching for the account that you would like to add to the posting. Repeat this step for each search committee member that you wish to add. If you cannot find an account for a search committee member, click Create New User Account. Enter the required information in the New Search Committee Member dialogue box and then click Add Member to Search Committee. Click Next.

13. The submitted requisition must be reviewed by SEO before the posting will go live. SEO checks the system a couple times a week for requisitions in their queue but supervisors are welcome to send SEO an email to notify our office that a posting is pending.

If you have forgotten to complete any required fields you will be notified with a message at the top of the screen.
