Frequently asked questions:


Is The Job Still Open?

All jobs that are currently posted are open.


Will I Hear From the Department?

If a hiring department wishes to interview you for aposition, they will contact you directly. Most hiring managers prefer that applicants not contact them directly regarding the status of their application.  If you are interviewed but not selected for the position, the Human Resource Office will send finalist candidates a letterof regret. Please understand this is a courtesy rather than a requirement.


Unsolicited Application Materials

Only materials that identify a specific, current vacant position are accepted.

Keep a Copy for Your Own Records

Candidates should retain a copy of their application materials. Once submitted, applications, resumes, work samples, etc. become a permanent part of Human Resources Office files and may not be retrieved. We also recommend keeping a copy of the job posting. After the position closes, copies are not available.


Employment Eligibility

By federal law, if you are offered a position, you must present original documentation that establishes your identity and your eligibility to work in the United States. Failure to present acceptable documents within 3 days of hire means you may not be employed.


Former Employees

Former employees who have been discharged, or who resigned in lieu of discharge, for reasons of misconduct, are not eligible for rehire at Clark Atlanta University.


Background Checks

By University policy a background investigation is required and will be conducted on all candidates who receive a tentative offer. All offers of employment are contingent upon the results of the background check.
