IC HR Cloud: Create Student Job Requisitions


This article is intended for student supervisors who post student jobs and hire student employees.


Creating a Requisition

Approval Process

IC HR Recruitment Tips

  • Unless prior approval is granted by Student Employment or your HRBP, all student jobs must be posted in the Recruiting Cloud to align with the Strategic Plan.
  • When creating a requisition, some information will be pre-populated. It is important not to change the pre-populated information unless noted below. 
  • For the purposes of this article and recruitment in IC HR Cloud, internal postings are viewable to all current faculty, staff, and student employees. External postings are viewable to any prospective faculty, staff, or students who has never held a position on campus

Navigation in IC HR Cloud

All tasks in this article can be accessed from the My Team tab, then by clicking on the Hiring App. 

Recruiting Types

There are two (2) standard student recruiting types, as defined below. Please be sure to select the correct recruiting type for your requisition for the appropriate information to populate.

  1. Student: This is the general template for all student requisitions that are undergoing a search. Student requisitions will always be posted to the internal and external recruitment cloud, and Hiring Managers are expected to review their candidate pool prior to making hiring determinations.
  2. Student Waiver to Post: The Student Waiver to Post recruiting type is used for closed searches, unposted requisitions, or for specific hiring practices (re-hires, promotions, etc). The Student Waiver to Post recruiting type bypasses the open search phase on the internal and external recruiting cloud and requires HRBP or Student Employment approval prior to proceeding.
