Campus-Only Recruitment - Employee Process

About the Program
To support the career progress of qualified internal candidates, the campus-only recruitment process may be utilized as a competitive recruitment process to fill career vacancies. When applying to campus-only recruitments current UC Santa Cruz employees will receive consideration for the position.


Eligibility
You are eligible to apply and receive consideration for referral to the hiring manager, if you are a current UC Santa Cruz employee on the day you submit your application.

How it Works

  • Current UC Santa Cruz employees who wish to receive consideration for a campus-only recruitment must be actively employed on the day they submit their application and must apply during the  internal recruitment initial review period.
  • Referrals for priority consideration will only be made if three or more qualified individuals apply. If fewer than three internal candidates apply, the external applicant pool will also be considered.
  • Recruitment will close without consideration of external candidates if the hiring manager selects an internal candidate.

 

How to Apply

 If you are a current UC Santa Cruz employee:

  • Go to jobs.ucsc.edu and update all applicable areas of your application. New users will be prompted to create a username and password.  You will then be moved through a series of screens to create and save an employment application. It is very important that on your application you indicate that you are a current UC Santa Cruz employee. This identifies you as an internal candidate.
  • Preparing a resume and customized cover letter is highly recommended.
  • Look for internal recruitments on the UC Santa Cruz job site, jobs.ucsc.edu, by sorting the column labeled Rec Type. Click “View” under the job title to see the details of a position that interests you.
  • Click the “Apply Here” button on the job posting and follow the instructions to submit your application and attach your resume and customized cover letter.
  • You must apply on or before the Initial Review Date (IRD) to receive priority consideration.
