STARS: Internal Applicants Can Log in Using Just One Step

The STARS team members have been working to improve your experience within the STARS system. Beginning December 8, at 8:00 AM, internal job applicants will be able to log into STARS in just one step using their Yale NetID.

What’s the benefit to you?

Internal applicants previously had to sign in twice to access their STARS account: once via CAS (the Yale University Central Authentication Service) to obtain permission to access the STARS Internal Gateway, and a second time to create a STARS account and profile.

You will now be able to log into STARS in only one step. After you enter your Yale NetID and password on the CAS screen, you will be connected directly to your STARS account. Forgotten passwords will no longer delay your application to positions of interest.

Your STARS profile remains confidential. No one can access a candidate’s account and see the jobs for which they have searched.

How does this affect you?

  1. When you click on the Internal Gateway link and enter your NetID and password on the CAS screen, you will be connected directly to your STARS account and will no longer need to log in a second time. This will minimize the number of STARS passwords that you have to remember.
  2. If you applied to a position via the External Gateway and were subsequently hired into that position, or another one at Yale, you will no longer be able to access the STARS profile you created on the External Gateway.
