Whether you are filling an existing position or creating a new one, it’s important to carefully consider the position description. Think about how the position will help fulfill organizational needs; if this is an existing position, this is a great time to pause and ensure that the position description still matches these needs. Think about the combination of skills, knowledge, and qualifications that the right candidate would possess. Solicit feedback from your team and those who may interact with the position.
Submit the Position Description
When you have created or revised your position description, the next step is to submit (or revise) the description in PageUp. PageUp is the talent management system for staff positions, including maintaining position descriptions and recruitment activities. This system provides hiring managers with access to all applicant materials. Within PageUp, applicant information, documents, and search committee notes are stored digitally creating a streamlined applicant review process.
