Navigating the System

All positions are open until filled unless designated as otherwise. You may submit an application at any time for all open positions. All UArizona positions are open for a minimum of seven calendar days and never close on a weekend or UArizona designated holiday.

All positions posted on our applicant portals are open and accepting applications.

All postings include a department contact name, email address, and/or phone number. This contact information is listed within the Position Details section of each individual posting.

The listed contact typically works in the hiring department and can answer questions about the position.

If a position no longer appears in your job search, then it has been closed, cancelled, or filled by the department.

If a posting is cancelled, it means the department has elected to not make a hire. The department may choose to post the position at a later date. You may apply again at that time.

Submitting an Application

Resume parsing, also known as CV parsing, is a matching technology feature that identifies and extracts the information from your resume and imports it into your application.

We recommend to always double-check the parsed information to ensure it was imported into the correct fields, especially if you replace your resume after parsing.

You may retype or delete improperly transferred information.

The most common reason why the system will not allow a document to upload is if the file name exceeds 50 characters. You must shorten the file name of your document to less than 50 characters to successfully upload.

The hiring departments will typically request references in the later stages of the recruitment process. If you are still being considered for the position at that later stage, the hiring department will reach out to you via email and/or phone to request reference information.

If you already submitted your reference information, but would like to submit more, please contact our Recruitment and Outreach team at (520-621-7704) or We will work with the hiring department to determine the best method for gathering the remainder of your reference entries.

Checking this option allows hiring departments to do a keyword search of your application for the purpose of matching it with other positions you may be qualified for. If they find a match for experience or qualifications, they may invite you to apply for other positions.

Once you select to make data searchable, you will be unable to unselect this feature for this application and future applications.

If you have a profile and submit an application, your field entries and resume/CV will automatically populate the required fields of future applications. However, you may have to upload additional documents required by the hiring department.

If you apply as a guest user, your application materials will not carry over to your next application.

For compliance purposes, the system does not allow you to edit the original documents submitted with an application. If you are invited to interview, you may bring updated paper copies.
