  • All applications/resumes must be received by the Human Resources Department (not the hiring department). The Human Resources Department logs the applications/resumes into the database and generates an e-mail response, if resume was sent via e-mail, or a letter if resume was mailed in or faxed. This is to let you know that your application/resume was received.
  • Once the applications/ resumes are logged into the database, they are sent to the hiring department where they are reviewed by the department’s search committee.
  • Generally, once the resumes are reviewed, prospective qualified candidates are contacted directly to schedule an interview.
  • This process could take several weeks or just a few days. You will be contacted directly by the hiring department if an interview is desired.
  • When the Human Resources Department is notified that a candidate has been selected to fill the position, the web-site will be updated immediately.
  • If you are not contacted about the position for which you applied, you may resubmit your application/resume for other open positions for which you may be qualified.
