We will shortly be upgrading the UTORecruit System. Our office will be issuing a number of PDAD&C memos over the coming weeks to inform you of various stages of this process. It is very important that you read these and ensure they reach the appropriate people in your unit.

The Taleo software that runs UTORecruit will be upgraded to the latest version on May 1, 2012. The main technological change will be browser independence, meaning any browser with Adobe Flash (e.g. Firefox, Safari, IE, Chrome) can be used to operate UTORecruit.

In short, you will be able to use a Mac computer.

A team from EASI, HR and my office is currently reviewing all processes associated with the system to ensure we are customizing the product in the best way possible for your needs. Our experience with the system since 2008 has uncovered a number of issues and we have decided to make a series of significant changes to the processes surrounding the use of UTORecruit for academic recruitment as part of the software upgrade. We will be communicating these to you over the coming weeks.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about UTORecruit and/or the upgrade please contact Stephannie Roy, Projects Officer, Faculty & Academic Life at stephannie.roy@utoronto.ca or 416-978-6662.
