Posting a Requisition on the Career Site

Printing the Job Posting from the Career Site

Once your requisition has received Provostial approval it can be posted on the appropriate U of T Careers Site.

You may also wish to track where applicants learn about the job to better target future advertising efforts by adding sources to the "Where did you learn about this position" question in the online application process.

Adding Sources

If you wish to track where applicants learn about your position you can add to the default list provided in the system.  The main sources (e.g. journals, websites, listservs and associations) are included by default and departments/divisions can add specific venues where they advertise positions.

If you wish to add a source that is not listed contact BEFORE you post your requisition to the career site.

To add sources:

  • Click on Requisitions

Printing the Job Posting from the Career Site

Remember you MUST make a copy of the job posting on the career site before the closing date for inclusion in the appointment dossier.  Having a copy of the requisition will not prove the job was posted and an actual copy of what appears on the U of T Career Site is a required part of the appointments process.

The copy of the job posting MUST include the equity statements that appear on the Career Site.

Use these instructions to create a PDF image of the job posting:

1. In your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox), go to the career site and find the job posting you want to print.

2. Highlight the all of the text of the job posting including the required statements.

3. Hit CTRL + P on your keyboard to initiate the print process.

4. In the printer dialog box choose “Print to PDF” or “Adobe PDF” and in the Page Range field choose Selection.  This means it will only print what was highlighted.

5. Click Print and you will be prompted to name the PDF file. (Hint: use the job title and requisition as the filename so you can easily find it).
