Where to Find the Job Opportunities--Here and Elsewhere

Welcome back to Opportunities at Penn. Some major changes in Human Resources have taken place and we will now be using this space to provide you with updates on activities. New job opportunities will no longer be listed in this space as new technologies are enabling us to provide better detailed information to staff, faculty and the public on-line. There are currently over 500 positions open at Penn for qualified applicants. New weekly job opportunities are still available in print and may be obtained at our Job Application Center.

You may view new and current job openings at Human Resources new website www.hr.upenn.edu. Positions are searchable by title, job, school and posting date. You can submit your resume on-line to be considered for multiple positions. Internal applicants interested in applying for a specific position should still submit their cover letter and resume directly to the hiring officers. Current employees may call 898-7284 to obtain the names of hiring officers. You'll be asked to provide your social security number and up to three contact names will be given daily.

The Penn Job Application Center has moved! A state of the art center opened this summer at 3550 Market Street, Suite 110, Science Center. Tel: 222-3400. Some of the new features include: additional hours of operation-8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, five PC stations with Internet access to browse open positions; assistance in completing applications; and the ability to apply on-line. Todays Penn Partnership (formerly Todays Penn Temporaries) is located at this site, and will continue to provide quality office support temps from this new location.

Todays Penn Partnership has expanded their services to Penn hiring officers for recruitment of regular office and support staff. Christine Panebianco is Todays' full-time recruiter for these positions. Please contact Christine at 222-3400, fax: 222-5949, or e-mail: upenn@todays.com if you need assistance. We are confident that Christine's expertise will help us with the challenges of locating office support applicants in a tight and competitive labor market. HR Recruitment & Staffing will continue to assist hiring managers in all other ways with open positions, including setting salaries.

Please note: Faculty positions and positions at the Health System are not included in these listings.
