We want you to have a GREAT applicant experience.

We receive thousands of applications daily and our applicants are reviewed by real people, not computers or machines! To help ensure that your qualifications are shared appropriately, please keep the following information in mind.

Stay Current

Our application process starts with an applicant profile – make sure your profile is complete and current

  • Create your profile with a private email - don’t use a work email
  • Your login email is a ‘username’ and it cannot be changed
  • You can change the email you use for receiving notifications at any time
  • Keep your contact information current or we can’t reach you
  • Make sure your resume is up to date with all your skills and experience 

Online Application

Once you have a profile you can apply to any job posting any time – just login and start searching

  • After completing an application make sure you submit the application
  • Be sure you have included all the materials requested in the job posting
  • An incomplete application will not move forward for review
  • If you do not meet the minimum qualifications, you will not move forward for review

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion is extremely important to us at UC and we require a short statement telling us how you have contributed to diversity and inclusion in your previous job – be sure to put some thought into this statement

Next Steps

Some positions require pre-testing to qualify for further evaluation - this will be noted in the job posting

  • The hiring departments are responsible for contacting and reviewing applicants for their specific job openings
  • Log into your profile to see where your application is in the hiring process

Not Hired

We can’t hire everyone who applies – it is a difficult decision to tell an applicant they are no longer in the running for a job

  • Keep applying – there may be another job that’s a better fit
  • Meeting the minimum qualifications is not enough to get the job – we look at many factors when deciding who to consider for employment
  • Remember, we get many qualified applicants – only one will get the job
