Learn to Apply for U.Va. Employment a New Way

Aug. 15, 2007 --  University Human Resources invites the public to a hands-on introduction to the new online-based Jobs@UVa application system at U.Va. on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2007, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Classrooms 30 and 40 at U.Va.'s Darden School of Business.

At the open house, UHR staff will be available to answer questions about applying to the University and to walk you through the new Jobs@UVa (https://jobs.virginia.edu) online application system.


•  Free and open to the public
• Free parking in the Darden School garage
• Free shuttle from Barracks Road McDonald's
• Light refreshments served
• Spanish speakers on hand
• Located near CTS city bus Route 7

On July 30, the Jobs@UVa online application system replaced the University’s paper-based application system, providing many upgraded capabilities and improved customer service. With the new system you can:

• Access your information 24/7 from any computer with Internet access
• Create, save and edit applications and check application status during job search process
• Search and apply for specific jobs
• Attach resumes and cover letters

The new system also allows faster posting of job openings and processing of applicant information.
Paper applications on file before July 30 expired when the new system launched, unless a candidate was already under consideration for a particular position. UHR recommends that all job-seekers re-apply using Jobs@UVa.

Jobs@UVa is easy to use for those who have previously used an online employment service or other online forms. To get help you can:
