All civil service and academic professional employees are required to have a signed job description on file with the Office of Human Resources.

Job descriptions should be updated as a joint effort between the employee and the supervisor. Once the job description is developed, the employee, supervisor, and the Dean/Director should approve/electronically sign it in JDXpert.

By signing the job description, the following is being acknowledged:

  1. That the duties contained on the job description are the responsibility of the employee.
  2. That the information contained on the job description is accurate.

New job descriptions must be submitted in JDXpert when seeking to fill or create a position, or when requesting a job audit.

Updated job descriptions are required every other year during the annual performance evaluation period or as directed by Human Resources.

Please review the recording of the Job Description Training that was provided to assist with writing job descriptions and using the JDXpert system.
