Jobs at IU Application System Transition

Information for Job Applicants

On October 1, 2019, the Jobs at IU system for staff jobs at Indiana University changed. PeopleSoft Talent Acquisition Management (TAM) replaced PeopleAdmin as the job posting and applicant tracking system for all staff and temporary jobs. This does not affect academic job postings.

The new system offers internal (current IU employees) and external applicants an improved candidate experience with an intuitive, mobile-friendly interface and improved search capabilities.

All job postings can still be found at Current IU staff employees should log in using the “Current IU employees” button so internal job postings can be viewed. All other applicants should log in to the external candidate posting system.

Any jobs applied for before October 1, 2019 using the legacy system (PeopleAdmin) can be managed in that system through December 20, 2019. Log in to the legacy system.

If you have resumes or cover letters in the legacy (PeopleAdmin) system that are not saved elsewhere, retrieve them now. If not retrieved, they will be lost and not recoverable.
