Uniting Talent with Opportunity

UD Talent Link is an applicant tracking system that provides an ideal recruiting experience for candidates, hiring teams and Human Resources.


All staff, faculty and facilities/maintenance workers will be hired through Talent Link. Part-time employees will continue to be hired through the current process. If you have a concern, please reach out to AskTalentLink@udel.edu before commencing a search.

Before starting the offer card, please review the Offer Details Help Aid. For more information about Talent Link, please use the additional resource links throughout the webpage and visit the HR Knowledge Hub in ConnectingU. Additional inquires can be emailed to Asktalentlink@udel.edu

Please use this Talent Link Pre-Work document to review the details needed for initiating a search. For more information about Talent Link, please use the additional resource links throughout the webpage and visit the HR Knowledge Hub in ConnectingU. Additional inquires can be emailed to Asktalentlink@udel.edu


You must add members to the search committee on the job before submitting the job for approval in the system. Only individuals named in the search committee will have access to applicant materials and be able to leave comments in the search committee tool. You do have the ability to add individuals that are external to UD by clicking on "add search committee member" and then "add new search committee member" in the pop-up window. To make changes to the search committee after the job card has been approved, send an email with the requested change to asktalentlink@udel.edu

Additionally, Search committee members can access application materials through the search committee box on their dashboard. Searches that committee members are a part of will appear in a list. They can then click on each applicant name to access materials including the application form and resume. Members can also bulk compile applicant materials into a PDF for printing or outside review

Another advantage of Talent Link is the ability to communicate with candidates in a much timelier manner. If it is determined that there are candidates that do not meet the role qualifications as closely as other candidates, you can send out declination emails at that time. Use this Declination Statuses Guide for futher assistance. You do not need to wait until the search closes and do them all at the same time.

We will be providing online resources to be utilized as needed, as well as live training sessions that can be scheduling in ConnectingU. In addition, we will be available for any questions that come up. You can email AskTalentLink@udel.edu with any questions.
