Georgia Southern University utilizes PeopleAdmin for the recruitment of benefited, student, and temporary staff. All applicants interested in employment must apply for vacancies using this system. The online application process has streamlined internal processes for hiring and provides improved feedback to candidates during the recruitment process.
Applicants are able to access job advertisements through a broad or narrow search according to their needs. Applicants are able to complete one online application and apply for multiple employment opportunities.
For walk-in candidates, the Department of Human Resources offers computers where applicants can complete the online application. Georgia Southern University does not accept fax, email, or hard copies of resumes, cover letters, or applications.
What is PeopleAdmin?
PeopleAdmin is a company based in Austin, Texas, and it is dedicated to providing support to institutions of higher education and the public sector. PeopleAdmin is a “service provider” company which provides a broad range of employment related services to improve the level of service to applicants.
What services does it provide?
PeopleAdmin will establish and maintain an automated internet based system for processing requisitions and accepting applications for employment. The system has the following functions:
- It allows applicants to complete and submit an employment application online.
- Applicants are able to view, update and maintain their application protected by their own logon and password.
- Applicants can review the status of their employment application online at any time.
- The system allows applicants to email cover letters and resumes as part of the application process.

Will the use of this system improve communications to the applicant?
Yes. Upon completion of an application and submitting it for consideration, the system will provide a unique confirmation number to the applicant acknowledging the receipt of the application. Later in the process, applicants will be notified by email of the status of their application by way of the system through updates by the Department of Human Resources. Applicants who are not successful will receive an email advising them of this fact and thanking them for their interest in opportunities at Georgia Southern University. Communications with finalists in job searches will be made to schedule interviews in much the same way as currently done.
