What is the best method for submitting my resume?
We prefer that you submit your resume online. You can update your resume and candidate profile through the Web site at any time.
I submitted my resume online. What happens next?
Your resume will automatically forward to the recruiter handling the position you applied for. The recruiter will contact you for an interview if your qualifications match the opening.
I'd like to apply for more than one position. Should I submit my resume more than once?
You may apply for multiple positions, but please apply only to those that match your qualifications. Your resume will automatically forward to the appropriate recruiter.
Is it possible to change my cover letter for each position that I apply for?
Yes. You can edit your cover letter, resume, and candidate profile at any time.
How long does the selection process take?
The position remains open until filled. The time it takes varies depending on the number of candidates the department interviews. Generally, the process takes between one and four months.
How will I know if a position has been filled?
Candidates applying online receive an e-mail confirmation when the position is filled. Candidates who interview for a position who are not selected receive a telephone call, e-mail, or a letter when the job is filled. Every effort is made to remove job positions as soon as the position is filled.
What is the interview process like?
If we determine a match with an open position, the first step is typically a phone interview or a meeting with a recruiter. The next step is a meeting with the department that has the open position. Certain positions require skill testing and writing samples.
Before employment offers are extended, a background check is conducted, including a drug screen and reference checks.
Is there opportunity for career advancement?
Absolutely. The Chamber believes in contributing to personal and professional growth and supports opportunities within and between departments. In fact, the Chamber looks at internal candidates before posting positions externally.
