Prospective CUA Employee FAQ

After I submit an Employment Application, when should I expect a response?

Normally you will receive an acknowledgement that your application has been received within 1 week of submission. Within 2-3 weeks of initial submission, the department to which you have applied will respond to you after it has had the opportunity to review all applications. YOU NEED NOT CALL TO SEE IF YOUR APPLICATION HAS BEEN RECEIVED. The Office of Human Resources will be sure to contact you as soon as possible.

How many times can I apply for the same position?

You may apply for the same position as many times as you like, but ONLY 1 application is necessary to be considered for a particular position. Applying multiple times for a particular position will not speed up the application process or cause the reviewer's consideration of an applicant's qualifications to change.

If you applied for a position, were rejected and wish to apply for that position when it becomes available again, you may.

How many different positions at CUA can I apply for at the same time?

If you believe that you are qualified, you may apply at the same time for as many different positions at CUA as you wish.
