Note: The position Type defaults to Staff Biweekly for ALL staff positions.  This will be updated after the position has been reviewed and classified.  Also note that you can refer to the Job Code Title Abbreviation list when entering a Position Title.  With PeopleSoft’s limitation of 30-characters for both job titles and position titles, it is necessary to abbreviate many of the words used within the job titles.  The abbreviation list may also be used as a resource to help interpret the meaning of abbreviated job titles. sos.IU
