New Faculty, Staff & MPPs

Welcome to the Spartan Community: Your Journey to Success Begins Here!

At San José State University, we're not just welcoming new employees; we're welcoming new members to our thriving community. Our mission is to provide an extraordinary onboarding experience that sets you up for success from day one.


  1. Complete New Employee Paperwork
    • Paperwork should be completed as soon as possible
  2. Activate Your SJSUOne and Duo Accounts
    • These steps can only be done after your new hire paperwork is complete. You will receive an email alerting you that your accounts are ready.
  3. Complete Your Onboarding Tasks
    • If you went through a recruitment for your new position, review and complete your Onboarding tasks via the Employee portal (log into the Careers portal to access the Employee portal). Individuals not hired through a recruitment will not have access to this portal.
  4. New Employee Orientation
  5. Resources for Your First Day
    • Explore these resources prior to or on your first day
