How often do you update your job listings?

We post positions as they become available and remove postings when we are no longer seeking candidates for a position.

Do I have to fill out an application?

If you are selected for an interview, an application will be provided and required at that time.

How can I confirm that I applied successfully?

You will receive an automated email reply to let you know we have received your submission.

What happens after I submit my information?

Once your information is received, it will be reviewed by the recruiter or the hiring supervisor or manager with the vacancy. You will hear from Human Resources or the hiring manager directly should we be interested in a phone or in person interview. Due to the high volume of resumes we receive, it is not possible to respond directly to all applicants, only to those whose candidacy is being pursued. In addition, the length of the recruitment process varies based on the division’s needs. Traditionally, the process takes approximately two to eight weeks therefore, your patience is greatly appreciated.

How long do you keep resumes on file?

Your resume will remain active for searches in our database for consideration of job opportunities for 60 days from date of submission.
