If you will be developing a new job description, follow the information below:
For on-campus positions, indicate if it is either a non-work-study or a work-study position. You may select only one position type. If your job fits more than one position type, you must create separate postings.

Resume Receipt (you have options on how you would like to receive application materials)

- Accumulate Online: Resumes will be collected in connectSC and will be available under the Student Resumes (non-OCR) tab. You can view them at any time online.
