Employment FAQs

Employment FAQs

  •  

    Where can I find current job openings?

    All job openings are posted under "Current Career Opportunities."

    State classified openings can be viewed on the state web site.  

  •  

    I noticed that you have three types of job postings. Please explain each type.

    • Faculty:  All personnel who carry academic rank, academic titles, or special academic status (Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Instructor, Lecturer, Adjunct Professor, Visiting Professor, Faculty/Research Associate, Faculty-in-Residence, Endowed Chair/Professorship, and Professor Emeritus) and certain administrative officers.
    • Administrative:  Personnel who are Officers and Directors of Administrative Departments, personnel appointed by the Governing Board as officers of the Board, all such professional assistants to these officials whose appointments are by Board action, and administrative employees who do not have an academic rank or title. This does not include State Classified employees or temporary employees.
    • Classified: Permanent employees not included in the Faculty or Administrative/Professional groups are members of the State Classified Personnel System. This system is governed by Colorado Law and requires that candidates for such positions be residents of the State of Colorado.
  •  

    How often do you update the Employment Opportunities web site?

    Our web site is updated as positions are approved for announcement, on the closing date for those positions with a specific closing date or when a position has been filled when no closing date is posted.
  •  

    How do I apply for open Faculty or Administrative Professional positions?

    Each job opening has different application requirements. Please follow the “how to apply” instructions on each announcement of interest. 
  •  

    How do I apply for state classified positions?

    Applicants interested in applying for state classified positions must submit a State of Colorado Demographic Information Form and a State of Colorado Application for Announced Vacancy available at CSU-Pueblo Human Resources, local Job Service Centers, or visit the Classified Employment page. Complete applications also require a Disqualification and Appeals Right form that can be found on the last page of the announcement.  Additional attachments, such as a copy of a driver’s license or college transcript, may also be required.  You should follow the instructions provided on the individual announcement to ensure full consideration.
  •  

    Do I have to be a Colorado resident to apply for your positions?

    You must be a Colorado resident to apply for a state classified position.  You are not required to be a Colorado Resident for Faculty or Administrative/Professional positions.
  •  

    Can I submit one application for several positions?

    A separate application is required for each announced vacancy as identified by a unique job announcement.  However, if a single announcement states that multiple positions may be filled during a search, only one application is necessary. 
  •  

    Do you accept emailed applications?

    We do not accept emailed applications.  Human Resources does accept applications that are mailed, hand delivered or faxed.  The address to mail applications or deliver is:

    Colorado State University-Pueblo
    Attn: Human Resources
    2200 Bonforte Blvd
    Pueblo, CO 81001
    Fax: 719.549.2902

    Be sure to indicate which position you are applying for.

  •  

    What is the location and hours of operation for Human Resources?

    Human Resources is located on the Colorado State University–Pueblo campus in the Administration Building room 306.  Office hours are Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  •  

    What does open until filled mean?

    Many of our positions are open until filled.  This means if the position is posted on the web site, we are still accepting submission of materials.  However, to ensure full consideration, please submit your applicant materials by the date indicated in the “applicant review” section of the announcement or if no date is indicated, as soon as possible.  
  •  

    If I received a letter regarding the receipt of my applicant materials, what should I do?

    If you are applying for a non-classified position, you will receive a letter from the Human Resources office acknowledging receipt of your applicant materials and you are not required to respond.  However, this does not verify that your submission is complete, that you met the minimum qualifications or indicate that further information may not be required. 

    Once the search committee reviews your application, you may receive written notice of the need to submit additional materials in order to receive full consideration.  If you receive this notification, you should follow the instructions included in the letter or email in order to complete your applicant materials. 

  •  

    If I have questions, who do I call?

    You can call Human Resources and speak to our Selection Specialist at 719.549.2187
  •  

    How long does the selection process take?

    State Classified positions generally take 4-8 weeks to complete.

    Our selection process for non-classified positions takes a minimum of 30 days.  Our goal is to hire the most qualified individuals in the most efficient manner possible.  However, searches require the coordination of many schedules and can take several months to fully complete.  All applicants will receive a formal notice when a search is concluded, canceled or suspended.

  •  

    Can I provide a resume for future consideration?

    Applicant materials including letters of interest, resumes or curriculum vitas for regular, non-classified positions are only accepted at the time of an announced vacancy.  Unsolicited resumes will not be considered for future openings or be held on file in Human Resources.  You must apply at the time of vacancy and follow the application instructions for the position that you are interested in. 

    You may contact specific academic departments to determine if they are accepting resumes for part-time, temporary teaching positions.

  •  

    Are you a state agency?

    Yes, we are a state agency.  If you are a PERA retiree and want to work for CSU-Pueblo, you must follow the guidance from PERA on work after retirement found on their web site.
  •  

    What kind of benefits do you offer to employees?

    Administrative/Professional and Faculty benefits are available on the CSU-Pueblo Human Resources web site.  

    State Classified employees are eligible for the state of Colorado benefits plan.  Information about the benefits can be found on the state web site.
  •  

    Are all employees eligible to participate in the Public Employees Retirement Association?

    State classified employees are eligible for PERA and are required to participate.  Faculty and Administrative/Professional employees are only eligible for participation in PERA if the employee is a current PERA member with 12 months of current service credit.  
  •  

    I am not a US Citizen. Can I apply for open positions?

    You are eligible to apply.  However, under U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations, you must be able to submit evidence of the ability to accept work in the U.S. by the day employment begins.  No one will be placed on the University’s payroll until all employment procedures are fully satisfied. 
  •

    Do I need to send the Applicant Demographic Sheet with my application materials?

    The Application Demographic sheet is voluntary; however, we encourage you to include the document with your applicant materials.  This sheet will be sent to our Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity office for review.  This document WILL NOT be used for selection purposes.
  •  

    What happens after I submit an application?

    Application materials will be reviewed by a committee of subject matter experts.  The committee will determine who to move forward to the reference and interview process.

    Our search committees may contact applicants if additional information is needed but applicants should ensure a complete application is submitted.  Applicants will be notified when references will be conducted, and/or if an applicant has been selected for an interview.  All applicants will be notified once the search process is complete.

    Due to the large number of applications we receive, we are unable to verify status of individual applications; however, if you would like an update on the progress of a search, you can call the Human Resource office at 719.549.2441.

  •  

    Is an Official Transcript required with my application materials?

    Your application materials only need an unofficial transcript.  However, official transcripts are required prior to appointment.
