New Careers @ MSU Job Posting Websites!

Are you an MSU employee looking for additional opportunities internally or an outside candidate looking for a career at MSU? We have good news for you! On Wednesday, April 26, 2017, MSU is launching new job posting websites called Careers @ MSU. These websites will improve the applicant experience and allow the hiring process to run more smoothly.

MSU Jobs IconThere are two different sites: one for external applicants and another for internal applicants. Prospective, external applicants will visit the external website for job postings beginning on the launch date. Current MSU employees should visit the internal site via the “Careers @ MSU” tile in the EBS Portal.

The internal site displays internal-only postings, along with postings open to all applicants. The benefit to applying to a posting through the internal site is employee preference over external applicants, where applicable. It also takes into consideration seniority ranking and eligibility for support staff positions.

Below we have included videos for current and prospective employees to walk you through the new sites. There is also a tip sheet available for additional information on the applicant features of the new system.
