Goodbye uHire… Hello UVic Careers

It's time to wave a final farewell to the uHire job posting system as Human Resources gears up to welcome UVic Careers, the new online job management system that will go live in Sept. 2014. Beginning Sept. 8, the UVic Careers system will be the recruitment tool for CUPE 951, CUPE 917, Exempt Support, Management Excluded and PEA positions.

"Job seekers interested in working at the university will be able to apply for jobs, save their resum&e#180;s and track the status of their applications online, anytime from any device," says AVP Human Resources Kane Kilbey. "The UVic Careers system will streamline the entire recruitment and hiring process."

Hiring administrators and search committee members will be able to manage information about their competitions anywhere, anytime. Offering comprehensive and powerful tools, the new system includes an onboarding section, where new employees will receive orientation information even before their first day of work.

UVic Careers system training for administrators

Hiring administrators (those who are currently uHire administrators) are encouraged to sign up for free introductory training sessions, from Aug. 19 to Sept. 5. Whether you hire staff regularly or only once or twice a year, these one-hour sessions are for you. Learn to find your way around UVic Careers, including:

  • Create a requisition for a job posting
  • Manage resum&e#180;s
  • Screen applications and schedule interviews
  • Extend an offer

Weekly drop-in sessions for job seekers and hiring administrators will be offered on Tuesdays from Sept. 16 to Dec. 9 from 1 to 3 p.m. in LIB 034j (on the ground floor of the Mearns Centre, Technology Integrated Learning area).
