New and Improved: Jobs at UW Website

The Jobs at UW website has been revamped, making it easier for job seekers to identify and apply for the jobs at UW‒Madison that interest them. The website now provides new ways to filter and search for job listings, while maintaining key features that are familiar to job applicants.

    1. Search results and job listings to browse are provided in a grid view for ease of use and accessibility.
    2. Listings for each job show title, employment category, job group, department, employment type, location, and job open and close date.
    3. Website users with accounts are able to add “favorites,” similar to the electronic retail shopping cart.

The account history for applicants with accounts has been transferred to the revamped website.
