A. Yes, you can apply for up to five positions at a time.
Q. How can I check the status of my application?

Enter your user name and password to access the applicant portal, which will allow you to check the status of your application. Due to the volume of applicants, we are unable to accept phone calls regarding the status of an application.
Q. What happens after I submit my application?
A. After you have successfully completed the application process, you will receive an e-mail confirmation and the system will automatically forward your application to a recruiter in Human Resources. Your application and qualifications will be reviewed by a recruiter for the minimum requirements and the department’s preferred skills and experience for the position. The recruiter will forward viable applications to the hiring manager for consideration. The hiring manager will review the applications and select which candidates they are interested in contacting for an interview. The recruiter and/or hiring manager will contact applicants directly, via e-mail or phone, to arrange an interview. Following the interview process, the hiring manager will select the most suitable candidate for the position.
Q. How can I be sure that my application has been received?
A. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address you specified on your application.
Q. What if I don’t receive a confirmation e-mail?
A. If you do not receive confirmation, one of the following conditions may have occurred: the system timed out while you were filling out the application; you did not complete all required pieces of the application; or the Internet connection failed in some way.
Q. How long does the application process and hiring process take?
A. The process may take up to three months from the time the application is received to the time a job offer is extended, depending on the position.
Q. How will I know if I am selected for an interview?
A. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by the recruiter and/or hiring manager via e-mail or phone. If you are not selected for an interview, you will be notified by e-mail or U.S. mail.
Q. Can I still apply for a position if the position is closed?
A. Yes. However, your application may not be reviewed or considered, depending on the selection status of the other applications received before the closing date.
Q. How can I check to see if a position has been filled or closed?
A. Click on the “Search Jobs” link from the main “Careers at AAMC” menu, and select your preferred Job Category and Job Location. Filled positions are immediately removed and are no longer viewable on the current job posting list. Closed positions are marked as “CLOSED” with a closing date noted.
Q. How long does a position remain open?
A. A position will remain open until the position is filled.
Q. What if the system won’t allow me to complete an application for a specific position?
A. There are parameters built into the system that do not allow for several conditions. You may not: apply to a specific requisition more than twice; complete more than 30 applications in a lifetime; apply more than 5 times for a particular job code; apply more than 5 times for a specific job title; or submit more than 5 applications in a 7-day period.
Q. I have selected a job to apply to, but when I “click here to apply online” nothing happens?
A. The system requires that pop-up blockers are turned off in order to function correctly. You can control pop-up blockers from the Tool bar (Tools).
Q. What are pre-qualification questions?
A. Sometimes there are pre-qualification questions attached to a job posting. If your answers indicate that you do not meet the specified qualifications, the system will not allow you to complete the application.
