Job Posting Guidelines

A current list of open positions can be found through our career portal at Regular staff positions must be posted for a minimum of five (5) business days and all supervisory and management positions must be posted for a minimum of ten (10) business days before an offer of employment can be made.

The university does not require that all vacant positions be posted. Some instances where a job posting may not be necessary include when an employee within the immediate area, department or school receives a promotion or makes a lateral move; when a temporary employee fills a regular full-time position; or when an employee returning from leave fills a regular full-time position (see the Family and Medical Leave policy for information regarding the employer obligations when returning from leave). This is not an all-inclusive list, but is intended to provide some guidance to determine when positions may be filled without a job posting. If you are not certain whether you must post a vacant position, contact the primary recruiter and/or the Director of Recruitment.

In support of the university’s commitment to affirmative action and equal employment opportunity, the Office of Human Resources provides job postings to the Missouri Career Center and other agencies as appropriate.
