The question was raised about the minimum time a position should remain posted before it may be closed. For both full- and part-time positions, the practice at BYU is:
External Job Postings
- Staff – 1 week minimum
- Faculty – 2 weeks minimum
- Administrative – 2 weeks minimum
To meet minimum federal requirements, all external job postings not restricted to university personnel must be listed with Job Service. (BYU Employment Services is responsible for meeting this requirement.
Internal Job Postings
- Staff – 3 days minimum
- Faculty – 3 days minimum
- Administrative – 3 days minimum
Any questions regarding job postings for administrative and staff personnel should be directed to Employment Services (2-3563); for faculty, contact the Office of the AAVP-Faculty Relations (2-3567).
