Mashable.com Rutgers human resources department is recruiting for the position of an “executive recruiter,” the university said in a press release.
The university also posted job openings for “assistant to the executive recruiter” at various positions across its various departments.
“To apply, please email [email protected] or fill out this application,” the press release said.
The Rutgers Human Resources Department has been a hotbed of hiring in recent years as colleges and universities across the nation have been faced with declining enrollment, as well as a shortage of people willing to work as full-time employees.
But Rutgers has been one of the most active recruitment companies on the market, recruiting in-demand graduates who want to build their careers on top of the university’s renowned academic programs.
For its part, the university has been touting its hiring efforts as a way to get students who are willing to take on the job and make an impact on the college community.
Last month, the school announced a new recruiting initiative to attract more qualified students to its programs, including a new program that includes online classes and a job placement service that offers a $100,000 scholarship for students who complete at least three credits.
Rutgers also is offering an “advisor to the exec recruiter position,” which is similar to the position it has filled for the past two years.
Rutgers says the position requires that candidates submit a resume and cover letter and “work in a leadership role.”
The Rutgers executive recrucer position, meanwhile, will be offered through an internship program.
Randy Tresco, the dean of Rutgers’ College of Liberal Arts, is the only candidate who is on the list for the post.
Trescola is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a professor of business administration.
The position will require that applicants be a Rutgers alum or attend Rutgers for one year.
The hiring process has also attracted some attention from some of the school’s most prominent alumni, who have been posting on social media their frustration over the lack of job openings.
“The problem with Rutgers hiring, and I mean hiring, is, they’re not hiring anyone,” David Daley, a professor at the Wharton School, wrote on Twitter.
“They’re just taking the jobs of others.”
