To this end, OHR has revised instruction manuals and extended SilkRoad training session opportunities in response to campus requests.
     

    Take a moment now to bookmark the SilkRoad  web page where up-to-date modules detailing requisitions, offer approvals and resume review are available. Next, reserve your place at an upcoming training. Weekly sessions are available through the end of 2015.
