4. Reminder: New HR Systems Going Live in March!

UCLA is in the final stages of implementing its new HR systems JDXpert and iCIMs, with the latter expected to go live on March 26. The new systems will prioritize the end user experience and also make it easier for those involved in the hiring process to track and manage job postings and applicants.

If you or a hiring manager you know are currently in the middle of any ongoing recruitment efforts, it’s strongly recommended that you wrap up soon – check with your department’s HR representatives for any important dates and deadlines.
