While every effort is made to fill positions as quickly as possible, many factors determine the time it takes to fill a position. This includes the period of time the position is posted, the number of applications received, and the schedule of the person(s) responsible for screening and interviewing applicants.
We discourage applicants from contacting the hiring department until they have been selected for an interview. Human Resources prepares an eligibility list of qualified applicants which is forwarded to the hiring department. After reviewing the eligibility list, the hiring department decides which applicants to interview.
Each department also selects the individual(s) who will conduct the actual interview. If you are contacted for an interview, you may inquire as to whom to send a cover letter, or simply present one at the interview.
