FAQs

How do I apply for an open position?

You must complete two steps to apply for an open position:

1) Complete a profile: Your profile includes your contact information and resume. You may complete your profile at any time, but must have a completed profile at the time you submit an application for a specific position. You will receive an email confirmation once your profile has been completed. You may update your profile at any time.

2) Submit an application: After completing your profile, you may submit an application for an open position by clicking the “submit” button at the bottom of the posting. After clicking “submit,” you will be asked a series of position-specific questions. After you complete the questions, your information will be submitted to the ATC talent acquisition specialist and you will receive an email confirming receipt of your application.

I have previously submitted my resume for a position at ATC, and would like to apply for another position that is posted on the website. Do I need to submit another resume?

Once you’ve created a profile (uploaded your resume and contact information), it is saved in our system. To apply for another position, just click the “submit” button at the bottom of the job posting. This will lead you to a series of questions that are specific to that position. Be sure to update your profile if you need to make any changes to your resume or contact information.

I received an email notification from ATC about a new job and submitted my resume for this position. When can I expect to be interviewed?

You receive email notifications based on the job interests you defined in your profile. When you apply for an open position, the hiring manager and talent acquisition specialist both receive your information. The pool of candidates to be interviewed depends on the specific hiring needs of the department, which includes (but is not limited to) a candidate’s related experience, education, skills and qualifications relative to the position. Submitting a resume for a position doesn’t guarantee an interview.

How can I check on the status of my application?

You will receive an email confirming receipt of your job submissions, and also may review your job submissions by logging on and selecting “view your job submissions” from the Candidate Home Page. While we would like to be able to contact all candidates personally, it is not feasible given the volume of applications we receive. We will contact candidates we are interested in interviewing, so it is not necessary to call for a status update. Please make sure your email spam filter isn’t intercepting the confirmation emails.

How long does it typically take a hiring manager to make a selection decision following an interview?

The amount of time to it takes to make a selection decision depends on the size of the candidate pool (the more candidates, the longer the process), the complexity of the position, the department’s hiring process and other factors. Because of these variables, you may want to discuss this question and any special considerations you may have with the talent acquisition specialist.

How do update my resume on your system?

To update your resume, click “create/update your resume” on the Candidate Home Page. The updated resume will be used for all future job applications, and also will be used for the positions for which you have previously applied.

Do I have to create a profile to view open positions?

No. To view a listing of all current posted positions, click on “job search,” and then “show all jobs.” Be sure to click on “next page” at the bottom of the screen to see additional listings.

How can I find out the salary for a position?

We do not publish salary ranges, which may be different from the hiring range. This information is discussed with candidates when they are interviewed. You may also state your salary expectations in your resume.

I saw a position on your website, but it wasn't there the next time I looked. Can I still submit my resume for that position?

Positions are removed from our website when they are no longer available. However, as new positions are added to our site, the location of the position within the job listing may change. Be sure to click on “next page” at the bottom of the screen to see additional listings.
