Managers: Laws and Rules
Preparing and announcing a job opening within the online Careers website is the method most often used by North Dakota state agencies to communicate the existence of a vacant position to the agency’s employees and the public. In announcing a vacancy, administrators should:
Develop a job announcement that includes: class or working title; position number; salary range or projected hiring range; closing date; location; procedures for applying; name, address, telephone, and TDD of contact; summary of work; minimum requirements; type of recruitment (internal and/or external); Americans With Disabilities Act accommodation statement; status (full time or part time and regular or temporary); and any other information deemed appropriate by the agency.
Job announcements should be posted within the agency for positions to be filled on an internal basis. Such announcements should clearly indicate that they are intended for internal applicants only.
Job announcements should be used for all positions for which applications are sought.
Class descriptions should be referenced prior to publishing a job announcement.
Assistance in developing job announcements is available from HRMS.
