What Happens to My Application Once Submitted?


Applications / resumes submitted for actual openings are held in Human Resources until the application period has closed and then are forwarded to the department with the position for review and consideration. Only those applications/resumes that meet the minimum qualifications for the position can be considered. Therefore, it is very important applicants apply only for those positions which they are qualified for based on knowledge, skills and abilities. Applicants will be contacted by the hiring department if they are selected for further consideration, or not selected to fill the position.
