Posting Days

Anonymous - Mar 05, 2019
Back to Ask the Experts

Our university currently requires all postings to be open for a minimum of five days to the general public. We are considering extending the number of days to match other universities who range anywhere from 5 to 21 days. As an affirmative action contractor, we see the benefit of extended days as: more time for applicants to compose a thoughtful application; allows time to feed to job boards; gives job seekers at least one weekend to review, gives hiring teams the time to review the diversity of the pool; however, we have gotten immense push back from our stakeholders. Do you have any thoughts on whether opening the posting longer does support a better recruitment? It doesn’t appear OFCCP has made an official statement on posting days. Do you have any advice, resources or content that we could use to support our position?
