  10. Complete each tab on the left of the screen and remember to click Save or Save & Continue in each tab.
    1. In the Justification for the request, answer the following required questions:

      2. What are the consequences of holding the position vacant?
      3. If necessary, what position would you cut (not including those currently “held”) in order to fill this position?
        Note:  Some screens have buttons to add “repeatable” items (job duties, fund sources, etc.); use the blue button to add another entry as needed

      1. The standard approval process for recruit requests is:
        • Initiator or Supervisor creates and submits the request in Yourfuture
        • Dean/Director reviews and approves – this step is optional, depending on the org structure and leadership expectations
        • Budget (for main campus) or College Budget (for Health Sciences)
        • Vice President/Admin
        • Human Resources (initial review)
        • President (approval to recruit) – all positions need the approval of the President prior to any advertising.
        • Human Resources (finalize and post)
  12. Add to Watch List to add action to your Home screen to make it easier to access 

Note: All job postings outside Yourfuture need to be reviewed by HR for legal compliance before the job gets posted (i.e., social media postings, newspapers, other job sites, etc.)
