Equal consideration is given to all candidates regardless of the manner in which they apply for employment (e.g., application or resume).
Applications and resumes are kept active for six months.
A candidate should send a follow up letter or follow up e-mail to the Human Resources Department (firstname.lastname@example.org). Unfortunately due to the high volume of calls, recruitment staff are not able to talk with candidates following up on applications/resumes. Candidates should not directly contact individual facilities and/or facility supervisors to follow up on applications/resumes.
No. However, our recruitment staff reviews applications and resumes on a regular basis. Candidates who are selected for interviews will be contacted by a human resources employee.
It is strongly recommended that a candidate bring: three (3) letters of reference, a copy of the highest educational level obtained, and their driver's license (or State Identification Card). If a candidate is interviewing for a position in a federal facility, he/she must also bring in his/her social security card. (For a replacement social security card go to: http://www.ssa.gov/ssnumber/).
Candidates for hire are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Candidates with felony convictions are prohibited from working in certain facilities due to contract restrictions. Candidates with multiple misdemeanor convictions are also prohibited from working in certain facilities due to contract restrictions. The Agency considers the type(s) of convictions a candidate has, how long ago the conviction(s) occurred, positive past work history, and the candidate's suitability for the position for which he/she has interviewed.
