eWork/PeopleAdmin Tip of the Week

Have you had a position posted for more than 90 days? Consider removing it from the web.

Need Help? Email Talent Acquisition at to reserve a spot at an upcoming eWork/PeopleAdmin training/working session.

More Tips!

  • Do you have a candidate who declined your offer? Remember to transition candidates to “Offer Declined” and tell us why in the hiring proposal.
  • Having trouble with bulk transitions? You can only bulk transition candidates who are in the same state. To bulk transition, filter and change all applicants to the same status and then bulk transition them.
  • Search committee members struggling to get logged in? Try these troubleshooting techniques: 1) copy and paste the username and password, 2) make sure that the search committee member is visiting, 3) use a different browser.
  • Do you need to transition a candidate currently in an inactive state? If a candidate is currently in an inactive status such as “not hired, hired, or position cancelled” please contact HR to move them to the desired active state. Initiators can only transition to and from states they have permissions to access.
  • Do you need to give search committee members Guest User access so they can review applications? Be sure to use the Guest User tab, so they receive an automated e-mail with their eWork login credentials. If the guest user function is not activated, and the position is posted, you may contact HR for guest user credentials.
