Application FAQ

  • I’ve applied. Now what?
    Once the closing date has passed, the search committee will review all completed submissions. Each search is unique, so timelines will vary on when you will receive a notification of your application status. If you are selected to move forward in the search process, you will be contacted directly regarding next steps. If you are not selected, you will receive a communication informing you of your status in the search at that time.
  • What if a position closing date has passed, but the position is still posted?
    In Advancement, we keep all of our positions active on the website until an offer has been officially accepted. If you see an opportunity of interest that is still posted, please feel free to apply or reach out to Katie Walker directly for more information regarding the status of the search.
  • Does each position require a separate application?
    Yes, each position requires separate application materials to be submitted for consideration.

Application Tips

  • Spend time to craft your cover letter.
    A cover letter allows you to expand on your experience and qualifications while communicating why you would make a great addition to our team. Take the time to craft a letter that accurately reflects your skills, experience, and interest in the position—the extra effort is appreciated and can make a difference!
  • Customize your application materials.
    Carefully review the job posting and highlight relevant skills and experiences in your resume and cover letter. It’s also a great idea to do your research on the college/unit/department in which you’re applying to in order to highlight more specifics regarding your interests.
