Finding Your Match: UVa requires an online application from everyone applying for a job with the University.(You also can create a Job Interest Inventory.) In order for Human Resources to match your application with a job opening, all the KSAs ("Knowledge, Skills and Abilities") and the job categories on your application MUST MATCH the job category and KSAs required for the vacant job. The best idea is to stay on top of openings yourself and, if possible, send your resumé and a letter to the department mentioned. A University directory is available in Alderman Library.
