Create the posting

Once the position description has been completed, the position can be posted to the VCU career site. All job openings at VCU must be posted on-line through the VCU career site unless a “waiver request” has been granted as an exception (see Waiver of Search Request for more information). University employee positions must be reviewed by HR prior to the final posting. (See the Talent@VCU user guides for detailed instructions on how to post your position.)

Keep in mind that the job posting may be a candidate’s first introduction to both the position and VCU. It should provide compelling information about the position, department and the University. Consider featuring the following information:

  • Highlight how the position supports the work of the school, business unit and University
  • Emphasize the opportunities for growth and career advancement
  • Describe the culture of the School or business unit. Is it an exciting atmosphere? An opportunity to work with experts in the field? Team atmosphere? Casual work environment? Flexible work?
