Our JHU Careers site supports the following web browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 10 and higher, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. Versions of Internet Explorer 9 and earlier will not function properly across all areas of the site and we recommend using a different version or browser.
Begin by clicking the “Menu” icon, which is located on the Careers homepage in the top right corner. Select “Jobs” from the menu and you’ll go to the main job search page of the site. Here you can select your filters (e.g., areas of interest, job status, location) and find job postings that meet your criteria.
This site includes all staff and bargaining unit jobs that are available throughout the United States. Some faculty positions are also posted here as a courtesy; application instructions for faculty positions can be found in the posting.
All applications for employment must be submitted online using our applicant tracking system. To apply and be considered for any of our jobs, you need to first set up a personal account (userid and password), and then complete an online applicant profile. Your profile information will be submitted when you apply for a job.
JHU requires all applicants to establish both an account (the email address and password you will use to login) and complete an applicant profile in our applicant tracking system. Your account allows you to manage the information in your applicant profile as well as view the status of jobs for which you have applied. Your applicant profile provides a single location to store your current information that is then used when you apply for jobs. The process of applying for a job takes only a few clicks.
You will need to supply an email address and create a password.
Our website uses a secure connection, which means that the information you provide is encrypted as soon as you save or submit it.
No, but please keep in mind that the contact information you provide may be used for automated email communications. Do not include your current work email address unless you want to be contacted in this way.
If you don't remember your password, you can have the system reset it. The login page includes a link to allow you to do this.
You will need to provide the same kinds of information you would give if you applied for the job in any other way. This includes your personal information, education, work history and references. You will need to provide specific dates for education and employment. You may also need to attach other commonly requested documents such as a resume or CV, cover letter and/or writing sample.
The application has five main sections—general information, education/certification/licensing, employment experience, resume/cover letter and signature page. In addition, there may be some additional qualifying questions depending on the job opportunity. It should take about 10 minutes to complete your applicant profile (assuming that you have all of your documentation at hand). You only need to update your applicant profile when your information changes.
Most mobile phones do not allow you to attach the documents you would need to attach to successfully apply for many of the jobs we have listed. For this reason, we encourage you to complete your applicant profile on a desktop or laptop computer. Once your applicant profile is completed, you will be able to search, browse and apply for positions from your phone.
Yes. You can save your work at any point and come back later to finish. Your applicant profile information is not available for applying for a job until it is complete and you have electronically signed it.
Yes. As long as the information in your applicant profile has not changed, you can use it repeatedly to apply for jobs. You can upload multiple cover letters and CV/resumes to your applicant profile and select the most relevant one(s) when applying for a job. If your information changes, we recommend updating your applicant profile with your new information and then re-signing your profile before applying for another job.
Your applicant profile has a section for you to upload documents (e.g., resume, cover letter). When you apply for a specific job, choose from the list of the documents in your profile that are most relevant for the position. These are the documents that are submitted for your application for the specific job.
No, you must apply online to be considered a candidate for employment. If you don't have a computer, consider using one of the computers available at your local library.
Yes. Resumes are uploaded to your applicant profile. When you apply for a position is when you select the resume for that job application.
Jobs that you have applied for will be listed on your My Activity page with the current status of your application.
Yes, you may apply for more than one position. However, you must apply for each position individually.
You are strongly encouraged to select a resume and cover letter when you apply for a position. This enables our recruiters and hiring managers to better understand what you are looking for and your qualifications. All Bargaining Unit positions do not require a document when you apply.
Jobs are added and removed every day, throughout the day. Job listings remain on the site until the position is filled or the requisition is closed or cancelled.
Yes, we update the job postings frequently. If a job is listed on our website, it is considered open. Please be aware some jobs take longer to fill than others and may remain open for longer periods of time.
Recruiters and hiring managers are constantly reviewing resumes. If your background and experiences are a strong match for the position(s) to which you are applying, the recruiter or hiring manager will contact you for a phone or in-person interview. Please understand that the resume review process takes time due to the high volume of resumes that we receive. If your candidacy is declined because you do not meet the basic qualifications for the job, or your qualifications are not as strong as other candidates in the hiring pool, you will be informed via an automated notification from the system.
On your My Activity page, check the status on the 'Jobs Applied To' tab. The job for which you just applied should have a status of "Application Received."
By applying online, your resume and cover letter are instantly available to Human Resources. On average, the hiring process – from resume review to interviews and reference checks to final offer – can take up to 60 days but this can vary based on the situation.
