Hiring officials have the options to fill wage positions using competitive or not-competitive processes.
Competitive searches are treated like classified searches and follow the same procedures in regards to posting timeframes, interview and other parts of search process.
Non-competitive searches are an option for filling a wage position, where a full search is not conducted. The hiring official will initiate the request in Careers to fill the position; once approved, the hiring official will be given a direct link to provide to the selected applicant to apply directly to the position. The job will not be posted for the public to view on the UMW website or VA site. All non-competitive hires are subject to complete a successful background check.
These options also apply the filling of Graduate Assistants, Athletics Assistants, and other “non traditional” positions. Please contact HR for more information regarding these types of positions.
