How to Apply

Here are some important tips for our application process:

  1. Our 'Minimum Qualifications' are firm, not flexible. Your resume should clearly demonstrate how you meet both the minimum and preferred qualifications in plain language.
  2. Chronological resumes are the simplest format to measure and assess things like: qualifications, time in position, etc. Experience-based resumes (lacking the timeline) do not allow for equitable comparison.
  3. Check the Career Portal for application status and note that review of resumes may occur after the posting window closes. Remember when a job posting is removed from our website it means we're no longer accepting new applications.
