Help with the Job Search Process

As one of the largest employers in Washington, the UW employs thousands of employees in hundreds of fields. If you decide to look for new opportunities, we hope you will first consider other UW positions. Our hiring managers understand the value of hiring staff with previous UW experience and some even require it their position's qualifications.

Whether you're a recent grad, mid-career professional or a retiree returning to work, getting the right job takes time, diligence and plenty of preparation. The UW and other sources have tools that can help make job searching easier. Use the materials below to get started.
