NATS Management Portal

Human Resources is transitioning to a new way of managing Position Descriptions and EWPs and evaluating and hiring candidates. In December 2012, NOVA Applicant Tracking System (NATS) launched providing a streamlined system for applicants to apply for positions at NOVA. This system allows applicants to create profiles, upload documents, include references, transcripts and apply to open positions at NOVA.

The second phase of this three-phase project is the NATS Management Portal, which allows hiring managers, deans, VPs and provosts at NOVA to log in to the system to view applicants in real time, share information with search committees, use evaluation criteria for applicants and view, add, and modify current EWPs and position descriptions.
