 As a result of modernizing our hiring system, the Human Resources Department is pleased to announce a streamlined and efficient process that greatly eases applying for jobs at Madison College. Workday Recruiting goes live on May 15, and allows for direct integration with our current Workday system, creating much-needed efficiencies. 

How does this impact me?

  • Employees interested in applying for posted jobs can do so directly through the “Career” worklet in Workday by simply clicking on the Apply button.

    • Resumes can also be attached to an application.

Hiring Process Highlights: 

  • Job requisitions flow directly into job postings
