How do I find out about open positions?

Position vacancies are advertised in the local newspapers and are posted on Human Resources’ Position Vacancies web page. Faculty and administrative positions are typically advertised in nationally recognized publications.

Do I need to fill out an application?

Yes. Applications are available online. When completing the application process, provide all requested information. To supplement the application, transcripts, resumes, and other supporting materials are suggested. If you are interested in a position that is not posted on the website, please contact Human Resources for information and instructions.

Are faxes or copies of an application accepted?

No. Applicants must apply through the online application process.

What if the application deadline has passed?

For positions with a posted deadline, applications received after midnight on the deadline date will not be accepted. If a position is listed as “open until filled,” applications will be accepted until a hiring decision is made.

How are interviews scheduled and hiring determinations made?

After the deadline, applications are reviewed by Human Resources staff to ensure that all applicants meet the minimum requirements of the job. The applications are then reviewed by a screening committee and interviewees are selected. After interviews and reference checks are conducted, an offer of employment will be made to the recommended candidate. Applicants will be notified when a hiring decision is made.

Will my application remain active for other positions that I’m qualified for?

No. You must apply for each position using the online application process. Once you have used the online process, the information contained in each field of your previous application will automatically populate when you apply for other positions. When applying for other positions, please update your application to reflect current information.

What if I’m interested in more than one position?

You must submit a separate application for each open position for which you are applying.

Is a background check conducted on all applicants recommended for employment?

Yes. A thorough background check including employment references, personal references, criminal records, and fingerprinting is conducted for all recommended candidates.
