Welcome to Human Resources

HR Mission Statement: We are a team of HR professionals, who promote an exceptional work environment for the PLU community, in order to provide a premier educational experience.

Online Job Postings - Are they Legitimate?

In light of recent employment scams, please be aware:

  • All legitimate PLU job postings are listed on PLU’s employment page. PLU only accepts applications and materials through our online application system. PLU does not accept materials through LinkedIn or other third-party systems. Any valid advertisements of job opportunities on external sites will direct back to our portal.
  • PLU will never collect personal information from you before offering you a position (social security number, DOB, etc). If you are offered a position at PLU, a background check will be initiated through our vendor, Alliance 2020.
  • PLU will never send you a check or funds of any kind to purchase equipment or supplies. Any purchases needed for your position will be fully coordinated by PLU.
  • We welcome you to contact our HR office at any time with questions or concerns.
If you spot a suspicious job posting or become involved in one, please let us know ASAP.
