Post an opening for an existing job

Have an account in the Wright Search:

  1. The job must have been approved by Student Employment, meaning the pay class and rate have been assigned. If this has not happened then see the How to Post a Brand New Job section below.
  2. To post a job: After logging into the Wright Search, go to the Jobs tab at the top of the page. You will be able to view your previous job postings (Job List) or create a new job posting (New Job).
  3. Under Job List, if your job is still active, you will be able to edit it. If your job is inactive, you will not be able to edit the posting. However, you can copy your previous information and paste it in a New Job form.
  4. After you complete your Job Posting and select Save, a notice will be sent to Student Employment for approval. Student Employment will approve your job if all information is accurate, if we find errors (e.g. wrong pay rate) we will correct them or contact you.
