How to...

Join the JHU Talent Community

When you are ready to apply for a staff position at JHU, you will need to Sign In and join the JHU Talent Community. If you do not yet have a Candidate Profile, click New Member to create one. If you already have a Candidate Profile, enter your email address and password, and then select Sign In to access the system. Fill in the form, noting that any field that has an asterisk is required. Make sure you save your password so you can access your profile later.

Set Up Job Agents

Job Agents are search combinations that you can use to identify positions that may be a good match for you. When you set up a Job Agent, you are asking the JHU Careers site to send you lists of jobs that match your search criteria on the frequency that you select.

Search for Positions

On the Home screen, enter key terms for the position type you are seeking and click Search Staff Jobs. If you have a requisition number, you can type it in the keyword box to be instantly taken to the job opening you seek. Click on any of the positions in the list to see more information and apply.

Submit Your Application

After you have found a position that you would like to apply for, hover over the Apply Now button. You will be able to apply with Facebook, LinkedIn, or through the online application. If you apply with Facebook or LinkedIn, your existing profile information (i.e., address, employment history, etc.) will be automatically populated into your JHU application and you will only be required to complete fields that are not included.

When you select Apply Now, the system will ask you to verify your login information. Click Apply for Job once more to enter the JHU Applicant Tracking System. Complete your candidate profile, remembering that any field with an asterisk (*) is required. Don't forget to attach your resume. Other supporting documents (i.e., professional references) are not required, but may help support your application. If you need more information about any section of the profile screen, click on the Help question mark icon next to each field. When you have completed the profile, click Save at the top of the screen.

TIP: Do not upload a cover letter or additional documents to your Profile. These job-specific documents need to be uploaded to each application.

Make sure you read the job posting completely and follow the directions carefully. If the job requires you to submit specific items, you will need to upload those documents into your profile to be considered for the job. In addition, there may be additional questions following your signature at the bottom of the form. Make sure you answer all of the questions.

Once your application is complete you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your application. The email will include a link to be used to access your profile in the future.

Track Your Application(s)

You can track the status of your application(s) at any time by logging into your Profile. Click View Profile from the Home screen and then click View Profile again from the Contact Preferences screen. Once you are on your Candidate Profile screen, click Job Management on the top of the screen.

You will see a list of the positions that you have applied for along with the date that you applied and the status of your application. If you click on the position title, you will see the full job description. You can also view the resume that you submitted for the position, withdraw your application, or view/edit your application and any attachments that you submitted.

Update Your Candidate Profile

Click View Profile from the Home screen to view a summary of your Candidate Profile. Click View Profile again to view the details of your profile. You can upload a new cover letter, resume, or supporting documents and adjust any of the data in your profile from this screen.
