Q: I don’t have an e-mail account. How can I get one?
A: You can set up a free e-mail account with providers such as Gmail, Yahoo, MSN or AIM. (Note: Cascadia does not endorse any specific e-mail service.)
Q: How can I find out about open positions without creating an account or profile?
A: You do not need a profile to search open positions. Simply enter the Career Center by clicking the Search & Apply button, and search open positions by job number, area of interest, location or keywords. If you decide to apply for a position, a profile must be created and an online application must be completed. If you are a current Cascadia employee, you will only need to create a profile and upload your resumé; you do not need to complete an online employment application.
Q: I’m a current Cascadia employee, why do I need to provide my resumé?
A: It is important that hiring managers are provided with your qualifications to assist them in the recruitment and selection process. Resumés provide important information about your work experience, education and skills. These areas are closely reviewed and compared to other qualified candidates who are interested in the open position.
Q: Why do I need both a resumé and an application? Doesn’t it contain the same information?
A: The application requires information that you may not have included on your resumé. It is important that both are completed as this information is used when your qualifications are being reviewed.
Q: When I go to the “Jobs I’ve Applied To” link, all the jobs I’ve applied to aren’t there. What happened?
A: Anytime a position is in the final stages of being filled, the job is removed from the website and is consequently removed from the Jobs I’ve Applied To link.
Q: I don’t see a closing date for your jobs. When do they close?
A: Our jobs are open until filled.
Q: How can I find out the status of my application?
A: Due to the large number of applications received, we are unable to verify the status of individual applications. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by the hiring manager directly. If you are not selected, you will be sent an e-mail notifying you that the hiring manager moved forward with another candidate.
Q: How long does the process usually take?
A: The application process can range from days to weeks depending on the volume of applicants and the urgency of the recruitment process.
Q: Can I apply for multiple positions?
A: Yes. It is important to note however, that Cascadia protocol only allows us to consider applicants for one position at a time.
Q: If I apply for more than one position, which position will I be considered for?
A: Cascadia will only consider you for one position at a time. Therefore, your information will be forwarded to the job that you’ve identified that most closely matches your qualifications and experience.
Q: I received several e-mails letting me know I wasn’t selected for a position. Why am I getting more than one at a time?
A: Each time a job is filled, an e-mail is sent to the applicants to let them know. If you get more than one email, you have likely applied for more than one position with the company. The e-mail will contain the job title and number of the position that was filled.
