Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Move to New Online Job Application Technology

El Segundo, CA, August 07, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Beginning this quarter, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) will have all 33 institutions in the MnSCU system using new online software to improve the hiring process for job seekers and the institution’s human resources representatives.

Interested job seekers are able to apply for current vacancies or sign up for job interest cards via the institution’s website. The new software will streamline the job search and application process for job seekers. Instead of manually applying for multiple job openings, candidates will create a user profile to submit applications and attachments (e.g. transcripts) electronically.

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities is joining more than 1,300 organizations nationally who have moved to the forefront of cloud technology for human resource management by partnering with NEOGOV, the nation’s largest provider of cloud based human resources software for the public sector. Using this technology, human resources, search committees and department managers can access online records to expedite hiring and provide greater accountability when selecting new employees.

“The NEOGOV solution allows applicants to easily apply for MnSCU jobs online,” says Barb Biljan, System Director for Human Resource Information Systems, MnSCU System Office Human Resources Division. “The NEOGOV product has also allowed our system to enjoy a standardized, time-saving applicant processing feature that is serving us well. I am very pleased with how this product has improved our system’s hiring and selection process.”

The new system will allow hiring managers and search committee members to quickly and strategically assess skill sets of talent pools utilizing an electronic sort mechanism. With the new system, administrative work and maintenance costs will also be reduced.

"We look forward to assisting Minnesota State Colleges and Universities in saving time and money through our NEOGOV solutions by facilitating strong and effective applicant pools for personnel managers and making job searches easier for everyone," said Damir Davidovic, NEOGOV CEO.
