Now hiring: Internal careers hub simplifies job search

Iowa State employees seeking internal job opportunities now have a new tool for finding job postings, creating job alerts and managing their applications in Workday -- the ISU Internal Careers Hub, which launched in April.

Dawn Kepley, associate director of talent acquisition for university human resources (UHR), said the talent acquisition team has supported hundreds of internal moves since Workday went live in 2019. She said she hopes the hub helps employees continue to find opportunities for career growth at the university.

Improved navigation

Accessed via the Workday main menu, the hub has four sections -- overview, browse jobs, my job alerts and my applications. Clicking on the icon in the menu will bring employees to the overview section, which provides snapshots of recently added jobs and submitted applications.

Hubs galore

Like the Benefits and Pay Hub launched in June and the Expenses Hub that went live on July 1, the ISU Internal Careers Hub is part of Iowa State's ongoing adoption of new or streamlined functions in Workday.

The job browser lists all jobs available to Iowa State employees and can be filtered by hiring manager, job category, management level, primary location and more. Search results also can be narrowed using key phrases in the search bar. In the job alerts section, employees can create alerts customized by search criteria and choose between daily or weekly notifications in Workday -- found by clicking the bell icon -- and via email.

Employees can view their applications in the applications section. The active tab includes drafts and submitted applications for open positions, while the inactive tab lists applications for closed positions. Recently submitted applications also will appear on the overview page.

One-stop shop

Kepley said the recently added jobs section on the overview page is an exciting addition to Workday because it highlights new opportunities and the hub's functionality streamlines the internal job seeker experience. She encouraged employees interested in learning about other roles at the university to create job alerts so Workday can keep them updated about potential positions.

"The volume of internal applicants across the university continues to be steady and this enhanced platform supports our employees as they manage their career interests," Kepley said.
