Create a Position Description

The University of South Carolina uses an online tool called USC Jobs to create and manage position descriptions.

Job Classifications, Pay Bands and Salary Rates

Before you log into USC Jobs to create or change a position description (PD), you should use the following tools to help you determine the correct job classification, pay band and salary rate for the position. 

Make sure to also follow these guidelines to develop an inclusive position description []df] that explains the duties and responsibilities of the position.


Position Description Approval

Once you log into USC Jobs and create or change a position description, you will need to route the PD through your normal internal approval process. 

After the PD has been approved by your department, it will need to be submitted to the Classification and Compensation Office through the USC Jobs online system. The hiring manager will receive an email from the USC Jobs online system once it has been approved.  

If the position is filled, please print the PD and have it signed by the supervisor and the employee, and send it to the Classification and Compensation Office, located at 1600 Hampton Street, Suite 804, Columbia S.C. 29208. If the position is currently vacant, the signed PD should be submitted with the hiring paperwork.  

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
