Requisitions and External Advertising


When an open position becomes available within a department, the first step in the recruitment process is to create a personnel requisition through the Employee Recruitment System, accessible through the NJIT Pipeline. A personnel requisition typically includes a job description, requisite skills, and qualifications for the job. Department of Human Resources classifies the position from union affiliation, salary range, and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) perspectives. After being fully approved, this requisition eventually becomes the job posting on NJIT’s recruitment website ( Please refer to the Online Recruitment User Guide for guidance on completing a personnel requisition.

External Advertising

Once a personnel requisition is approved and posted on the NJIT careers site, you may choose to externally advertise as well.  The options available are placing an advertisement in a variety of online job boards, or in print media including newspapers, trade journals and publications. Advertising on NJIT’s Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook sites would complement your current use of NJIT’s job website, diversity websites and other publications.

To post an external ad, the hiring manager must complete an Advertising Request Form (ARF) which can be found here.  The desired ad copy should be emailed to . The appropriate department head and vice president must sign the form and then forward it to the Budget Office for approval. Once the fully approved form is received by Human Resources, it is reviewed and then placed in the requested areas.
