Talent Acquisition Management (TAM)


The project's vision is to implement TAM as UC Merced’s recruiting solution to replace PAWS for staff recruiting.

TAM provides a solution for candidates, recruiters, and managers. It features intuitive, easy to use pages for every step in the recruiting process, allowing employees and external candidates to search, view, and apply for jobs online. With built-in applicant tracking, recruiters and managers can focus on the most important outcome—identifying and hiring staff talent quickly.



This project will:

  • Meet compliance, confidentialty and regulatory needs

  • Allow internal and external job postings  

  • Identify qualified candidates based on core profile data

  • Integrate seamlessly with resume processing software

Current State

UC Merced is using PAWS, a home-grown system for staff recruitment purposes.

Future State

TAM will streamline the staff recruiting process at UC Merced to create a user-friendly interface that will help drive a higher completion of applicants to posted staff  jobs, resulting in a higher caliber of candidates and (eventually) hired employees.
