HR expanding UT Health Careers

UT Health Careers is a recruiting and onboarding software application originally implemented in 2016 to support faculty processes. We are expanding this system to include both faculty and staff. This integration will allow hiring managers to increase the strength, size, and diversity of their candidate pool, reduce the time to hire, and engage in a more efficient process for hiring. Additional information regarding the system will be released as we begin to implement the system.

Talent Acquisition Skill and UT Health Careers System Training Opportunities

In support of the UT Health Careers expansion the HR Learning & Organization Development and Talent Acquisition Teams are launching two new courses to promote an improved hiring process. The aim of these courses is to:

  • Expand understanding and application of effective recruitment techniques
  • Increase recruitment effectiveness
  • Achieve consistency in the recruitment process
  • Explore the UT Health Careers software application to facilitate recruitment, hiring, and onboarding

Talent Acquisition: “What Hiring Managers Need to Know” is the first in a series of manager-specific courses that the HR Learning & Organization Development team will be offering. UT Health San Antonio managers play an essential role in ensuring we achieve our institutional mission and strategic goals. Managers must lead change, meet metrics, and balance the needs of the team with that of the department, school, and institution. UT Health Human Resources is dedicated to providing UT Health San Antonio managers the training, tools, and resources they need to succeed. These courses will be developed in alignment with annual institutional processes to provide just-in-time learning opportunities for our UT Health community.

UT Health Careers Systems Training: The systems training will focus on developing familiarity with the UT Health Careers employment system through interactive scenarios. In this session, participants will:

  • Explore UT Health Careers navigation and tools
