What if I need accommodations to apply for a position?

If you need an accommodation to complete the online employment application, you may call the Human Resources Office at 717-361-1118.  (Please note that this phone number is only for those individuals who would like to request an accommodation to apply for an open position.)  Alternatively, an email may be sent to hr@etown.edu.  Please include “Applicant Accommodation” in the subject line of the email.  A representative of the Human Resources Office will contact you regarding your request.  The College will provide accommodations for requests on a case-by-case basis.    

How many positions may I apply for?

You may apply for any number of open positions for which you meet the minimum qualifications.  You will need to submit a separate application form and supporting documents for each position you wish to be considered for employment at the College.

How do I know if a position posted on the website is still open?

All jobs that appear on the website may be in various stages of the process.  Job openings are not removed until they are filled.  

Can I apply for a position after the closing date has passed?

Applications will not be considered once the closing date has passed.  However, we encourage you to continue to visit our site and apply for new jobs as they become available.

Will you keep my resume on file and consider me for positions as they come open?

The College does not keep resumes on file.  A new application, resume, and any other required documents, must be submitted for each of open position you wish to apply for at the College.  

What happens after I submit my application?

You will receive an email acknowledgement that your application was received.  Human Resources will review your resume to ensure you meet the minimum qualifications for the open position.  If qualified, your resume is then forwarded to a hiring department for consideration.  The hiring department will review the applications and make a short list of applicants to interview.  

How do I know if I have been selected for an interview?

If you are selected for an interview, the hiring department will contact you directly.

Why have I not been contacted for an interview if I meet the minimum qualifications for the position I applied for?

The College receives a significant number of applications for our open positions.  Competition is very high for each position within the College.  Although you may meet the minimum qualifications for the position you applied for, there may be other applicants who meet and exceed the minimum qualifications for the position or who meet the preferred qualifications for the position.  Only a select number of applicants are chosen for an interview.  

Will I be notified if I am not chosen for the position?

The length of time required to fill a position varies depending on the needs of each department.  Once a position has been filled, candidates who were not selected, will be notified by Human Resources or the Hiring Manager.
