Self-Service Temporary Hiring- for MSU Hiring Managers Only

Departments also can choose to manage the temporary employee hiring process independently through the EBS Portal, which is part of the University's EBS or Enterprise Business Systems. To process a temporary employee hire through the EBS Portal, an individual with an appropriate role in the unit, such as Unit Administrator, would log into EBS at the EBS Login Portal and initiate the hire.

Our self-service option is a good choice for units that want to handle their own candidate selection, hiring process, time entry and payroll processing for their temporary employee(s). If you have questions related to hiring a temporary employee through the EBS Portal, contact:
