How do I ... ?
Q.    How do I apply for a currently available position?
A.    If you are interested in a position that is currently available at our college, please mail a letter of interest, resume, and three original, current (dated within the past six months) letters of recommendation to:  Director of Human Resources, Worcester State University, 486 Chandler Street, Worcester, MA 01602-2597. 

**Please be sure that your resume is mailed by the application review date listed on the job posting.**

Q.    May I send my resume to Human Resources for them to keep on file until a position in my area of interest becomes available?
A.    Yes.  You are welcome to send us your resume at any time.   If there is not a position available in your area of interest at the time of your application, we will send you a letter confirming our receipt of your resume.  We will also keep your resume on file for a period of six months.  If a position becomes available during that time, we will mail you a letter asking you if you would be interested in being considered for that position. 

**Please note: If your resume is on file with us and a position becomes available in which you are interested, please call us to ensure that we place your resume in the appropriate search file.**

Q.    How will I know that you've received my resume?
A.    All resumes received by our office are recognized by letter.   You should receive a confirmation letter from us within 1 to 2 weeks of the day we received your resume.

When ... ?
Q.    When will I get a response regarding the status of my application?
A.    For every vacant position, a search committee is appointed to review all resumes, and they decide who they would like to interview.  Depending on the position and size of the search committee, this process can take varied amounts of time.  Please be assured that as soon as a final decision has been made about who will fill the position, all applicants will be notified by mail immediately that they have not been chosen for further consideration.  However, you are welcome to call us at any time to inquire as to the status of your application.
