Arkansas Newswire Now Includes Information About Internal Job Postings
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Position titles and application deadlines for newly posted internal job searches are now included as a part of the Arkansas Newswire daily newsletter. The listing of new internal openings can be found in the "University Job Posting" section of the newsletter and includes a direct link to additional details about all ongoing internal searches on campus.

"We want to encourage staff members to advance their careers at the university, and that starts with convenient access to information about all job openings on campus."
The university's HR site includes a section devoted to applying for employment with the ability to customize job searches within the following five categories:
"We've been including reminders about where to access information about internal openings and other employment opportunities for several months, but have recently started to provide a few more details about the specific positions," Alison said.
