Did you receive my application and resume?

We appreciate your interest in becoming a part of the Johnson C. Smith University family, and we understand how important it is that your credentials reach the right person for consideration.  Unfortunately, the size of our staff limits our ability to respond to phone calls from applicants who ask if we have received their application or resume. 

Resumes submitted to hrrep@jcsu.edu or www.careerbuilder.com will receive an automatic response via email.  We will acknowledge resumes and applications received by fax or U.S. mail by email when an email address is provided. Please print this response as confirmation that we have received your resume. If you have not provided us with an email address, we will mail a postcard acknowledging the receipt of your credentials. You will normally receive this postcard in 10-14 business days.

What happens to my application or resume after I submit it?

If you have applied for a current vacancy, your credentials will be forwarded to the hiring supervisor or search committee who will review them for the opening. If you are a top candidate for the position, you will be contacted for an interview. This contact will come from the hiring department. 

General applications or resumes (applications or resumes submitted when no opening exists), will remain on file for 90 days. This will allow us to review your credentials for job openings that occur during that period. You will be contacted only if the position becomes available within the 90-day period for which you appear to be qualified.

How long will my application or resume be active?

Your application or resume is active for 90 days. After this 90-day period, a new application or resume is necessary to apply for openings within the university.

Should I submit an application or a resume?

Initially, a resume and letter of application are needed to express interest in a position. In some cases, we will ask that unofficial transcripts and reference contact information be submitted along with the resume and letter of application.
