STARS: New Job Posting and Recruitment System

During January, Yale will unveil its new web-based, job-posting-and-recruitment system in designated pilot departments. The new software, which complements the expertise of our staffing professionals, will streamline Yale’s hiring process and enable Human Resources to find and move the most talented people, internally and externally, into the right jobs at the right time.

The new system, called STARS (Strategic Talent-management And Recruiting System), is hosted by Kenexa-Brass Ring and will replace Resumix. Human Resources will roll out the new system to the rest of the campus beginning in February and through mid-year.

With STARS, Yale staff and external job applicants will be able to create, update and save resumes on-line, apply for more than one position, or search for jobs that meet their criteria. Hiring managers will find the recruitment and placement process more transparent each step of the way. Please visit the STARS web site at http://www.yale.edu/hronline/stars/ for updated information about STARS and our implementation plans for 2007.

STARS Open House Presentations
As we approach the final stages of readying the resources and systems that will support STARS, I invite you to attend one of the several STARS Open House Informational Sessions offered on campus. These informal sessions are designed to introduce you to our new job posting and recruitment process. Formal on-going training on the application will commence in February.

Below is a schedule of STARS Open House Informational Sessions. Please register through the Learning Center at http://learn.caim.yale.edu/lcdb/courses/classinfo.asp?CourseID=1097 to attend.
