Completing Hires Through Other Systems

The following information provides guidance for completing hires in MyTrack for recruitments managed in Academic Jobs Online (AJO), MathJobs, or other alternative application system:

For Institutional Hiring Plan Tenure Track Faculty Searches:

  1. Hiring unit emails mytrackhelp@uoregon.edu to request an applicant record be created in MyTrack for the finalist (see Request for Applicant Record Email section below for email requirements)
    • Requests can be submitted prior to approval of term sheet, but applicant records will be created only after the contingent offer letter is received from the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs (OPAA).  If there are questions, a member of the Talent Acquisition team in Human Resources will reach out to the requestor.
  2. Human Resources creates the applicant record in MyTrack with information provided and uploads application documents.
  3. Human Resources advances candidate to “Contingent Offer Accepted” status once the record is complete.  This status triggers the background check notice to the finalist.
  4. Human Resources enters offer card information based on the approved letter from OPAA/term sheet.
  5. Human Resources reviews the offer card, completes all required employment related checks, and releases formal Notice of Appointment (referred to as the “offer letter” or “offer” in MyTrack and in the instructions below).
    • The formal offer will include an applicant certification statement (as this was not captured via AJO at the point of application).
    • The candidate will receive email notification about the offer, including instructions to set an initial password they may use to log in to MyTrack and review/accept the formal offer.
    • This email notification is immediately followed by a secure password reset email.
  6. Candidate sets their own password, logs in, accepts the offer, completes required new hire forms. The standard offer workflow commences.
