Pursuing a particular position at Penn? HR's redesigned website now allows seekers to enter a job title or profession--or any keyword in the job description--and arrive at a list of openings that fit. For example, among the 500 current openings, Penn has only one for a gardener. In the former system, an applicant needed to know which center had the opening (Morris Arboretum under Provost? New Bolton Center under Veterinary School? Physical Plant under a VP?). Now the user enters gardener (or accountant, or nurse...) and can find the listing in any center posted on any date. The direct URL for the new section of the HR homepage is www.hr.upenn.edu/jobsearch/default.asp. For those who do not have access to a computer, Human Resources provides five PC stations at 3550 Market Street, Suite 110.
