Online Applicant Tracking System
The UT system has implemented a new applicant tracking system that gives applicants the ability to search for open positions by location and entity, upload required materials and submit employment forms after accepting a position. Applicants can check their application status electronically, and job postings are removed automatically once positions are filled.
How do I search for staff job openings?
How do I apply for a job?
All applications should be submitted online and an email address is required. You will receive an email message to confirm you have applied for a specific position and again when your application is forwarded to a hiring department for consideration. Additional notifications will be sent as appropriate via email throughout the recruitment process.
The first step in the process is to choose from one of the two applicant gateways.
- External applicants, UTC student assistants and graduates assistants should apply through the External Career Site. If you are an external candidate, you will create a new account to submit your application.

Enter your Net ID and password (the same Net ID and password you use to view your paystub) to apply for positions faster and easier because the system automatically adds information the University already has on file.
