UNMJobs Forums and HR Symposia
Beginning in January 2012
Beginning in January 2012, the regularly scheduled UNMJobs Forums will have a new look and feel. The new forums will be titled, "HR Process Improvement Forums." Instead of two forums a month, one on north and one on main campus, there will be four forums, two separate presentations each delivered on north and main campus. Although the forums will still contain important information about UNMJobs process changes, new functionality, and enhancements, there will be other topics covered such as, EPAFs (Electronic Personnel Action Forms), audit recommendations, operational updates, and Employment Areas initiatives.

Attention Employees Involved in the Staff Hiring Process
New legislation from the 2010 New Mexico General Session becomes effective May 19, 2010.
