Frequently Asked Questions
Can I send my resume directly to your office?
We do not accept paper or emailed resumes and/or cover letters. To be considered for a staff opening, you must apply online; please visit our Careers page for links. If you require an accommodation to participate in any part of the employment process, please contact Equal Opportunity Services by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 412-268-3930.
What is the status of my application?
As soon as you submitted your online application, your information became available to the hiring department for review. They or a member of the Recruiting & Staffing Services team will contact you directly if they have any questions and/or wish to schedule an interview. Due to the volume of applications received, we regret that we cannot provide individual status updates.
Why is the job no longer showing on your website?
Jobs are typically removed from the site when the hiring department has received a sufficient number of applications for the position and is no longer seeking additional candidates. In some cases, the hiring department no longer needs to fill a position. Once a job is removed from the site, it is no longer available for an application submission.
The salary is shown as “Negotiable” - how much does the job pay?
All salary determinations are made at the hiring department level within university guidelines. The departments typically discuss this matter with qualified candidates during the selection process.
Do you offer any temporary positions?
Yes! The temporary positions are primarily for administrative support and entry-level technical positions. Please learn more about our temporary staff positions on our Careers page.
