Student and Sessional Academic Workers must apply for positions through a new system called REACHUM. All applicants to a CUPE 3909 position are expected to create an account in order to enter a résumé and/or CV and complete the application process through this system. Although anyone who has gone through this process knows that there are many challenges with REACHUM, a possible, but not ensured, positive outcome may be that the posting and hiring process will become more standardized and transparent. In the meantime, as an internal applicant you are encouraged to enter your account as soon as possible, even if there are no positions posted yet. The University has staff to help complete the process (Help Desk 204 474 9400) but it is also a good idea to follow up with your department to make sure your applications go through. Finally, if you believe that you have lost out on a position because of a problem with REACHUM, contact us immediately.
