Hiring Temporary Labor

1) Create the Job Posting in PeopleAdmin

All temporary positions are required to be posted. All postings for temporary positions are completed through our hiring site, PeopleAdmin.

The purpose is to provide the organizational justification for: 1) filling a vacant position, or 2) creating a new position funded from operations. 

  • Log into PeopleAdmin using your Lewis & Clark username and password. If you do not have a PeopleAdmin account, contact to have one set up. 
  • All temporary positions are required to be posted for a minimum of 3 business days
  • Potential candidates can apply for the position directly through the website and you can review their applications online. 
Here is a quick instruction guide on how to successfully create a posting in PeopleAdmin.
  • Select “Supervisor/Manager” from the drop-down list in the top right-hand corner of the page.
  • Select the “Create New Staff Job Type Posting”
  • Select “Create from Position Type.”
  • This will give you access to previous postings associated with your department. Select a similar previous posting, if applicable.
  • Select “Create Posting from this posting.”
  • Continue to select “Create New Posting” and “Next” buttons to update/edit all the applicable fields, including job summary, qualifications, experience/skills gained, and work schedule.  
  • If you’d like to add additional users to view the applications, enter the names of the Search Committee in the “Departmental Users with Access” field.
