2.3.1 Recruitment

It is Jackson State University’s policy to fill all job vacancies with the best-qualified person available.  Jackson State University is committed to a program of recruitment and retention of excellent staff employees.  All non-exempt staff position vacancies must be posted on the University website for a minimum period of five (5) working days and ten (10) working days for exempt staff positions. 
If a holiday falls within the posting period, it will not be considered in calculating the minimum required period.  A department head may extend the posting past the minimum period by simply requesting an extension from the Division of Human Resources.
If the on-campus posting has not yielded a candidate suitable for the vacancy or the requesting departments want to do a broader search, the Division of Human Resources may approve an off-campus advertisement at the hiring departments’ expense.
