What happens after I submit my application?

After your application is submitted, it is entered into a tracking system and sorted by hiring department. The hiring supervisor reviews all applications and then selects qualified applicants for interviews. 

The application review process takes at least 2 to 3 weeks after the position has closed. Applications for positions listed as “until filled” are reviewed by the hiring department at their discretion. 

If you have been selected for an interview, the department will call you to schedule an interview. After interviews are conducted, a top candidate is identified. The HR Department conducts a background check. The hiring department contacts the top candidate to make a job offer.
