PeopleAdmin Workflows & Resources

PeopleAdmin is William & Mary's online position management and recruitment system for updating job descriptions, requesting a job classification review, and for hiring new employees.

To begin the process of recruitment, an approved position description is required. Every department has an assigned Classification & Compensation Analyst to assist you in position management and an assigned member of the Talent Acquisition Team to assist with recruitment.

There are two position types in PeopleAdmin:

  • Staff & PPF (Professionals/Professional Faculty)
  • Instructional & Executive

See below for workflows (also known as the approval process) and job aids for using PeopleAdmin.
