During your first day, your supervisor will welcome you to your new workplace. You will meet your team and get any equipment you need to perform your job duties.
You will sign your employment contract at the Department of Human Resources Management. Afterwards, you will receive your employee ID card, also known as the "JKU Card". The chip on your card also contains your parking permit (if you choose to purchase a permit), allows you to access copying services, and also serves as your library card.
In order to use your computer and access the JKU's IT services, when you begin working, you will have to first activate your JKU account. You will then be able to access a wide range of internal JKU services.
Now there is nothing standig in the way of starting your new job!
During the first weeks/months and depending on your job position, you will receive information about various welcome and introductory events (i.e., the Welcome Breakfast). Although attendance is optional, we encourage you to take part and learn more about the JKU, the university's history, structure and organization as well as meet those who have also recently started working at the JKU.
Once you start working at the university, you will receive additional information about these events. Depending on your position and employee level at the university, you will also get details about what else you need to address during the orientation process. The JKU has also published a brochure with information for new employees. You can also find this brochure in the JKU's intranet system.
