Requisition System

The iRecruit Requisition System is utilized, along with the Job Description System (JDS), to develop a recruitment plan and package and to route this recruitment package for review, approval and posting on the iRecruit Application System. The Requisition system contains all of the key information required for Human Resources to review, classify and post the position for recruitment. The Requisition System also retains the recruitment information as a permanent record.

For more information about Requisition System routing & roles, see the Routing & Roles section.

The Requisition interface consists of the following tabs, which must be completed by the user before the recruitment package can be routed for approval:


HR Overview

The Overview screen displays a summary of the requisition details captures within the other system tabs. This summary is available to allow the user to easily review the Requisition data elements at any time.

Job Description

HR Job Description

The Job Description tab is the gateway to the Job Description (JD) associated with the requisition. The JD is the heart of the recruitment, and the iRecruit system requires that the JD be initiated before allowing the Department HR Coordinator to work on any other part of the requisition.

The Job Description tab has two display modes:

  • When the Department HR Coordinator first opens the requisition, they are presented with links allowing the JD to be initiated either from scratch or by copying a JD already extant within the system.
  • Once the JD has been initiated, the JD tab shows a summary of the JD information, as well as (when appropriate) a link to enter the Job Description System (JDS) interface to further edit the JD.

For more information on the JDS and the creation/editing of the JD, please click on the Job Description link in the left-hand navigation.
