FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I find out about job vacancies with RCUH?

Job seekers can find current job vacancies through our online recruitment system via the RCUH website (www.rcuh.com). Click on Job Postings under the “Work” tab. The system is typically up 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, with the exception of one hour on Monday (12 AM – 1 AM Hawai‘i Standard Time). You may also stop by the RCUH Human Resources office to browse job vacancies posted on the bulletin board or check the Department of Labor & Industrial Relations’ HireNet Hawai‘i and linkage agencies.

In addition to being posted at the project site, job vacancies may also be available via commercial job-seeker websites (e.g., Craigslist, Indeed, Monster), local newspapers (e.g., Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Hawai‘i Tribune Herald), and various local, national, and international publications of general circulation.

How do I apply?

You must apply through our online recruitment system in the Job Postings page. To apply for a specific job vacancy, click on the job title to view the full job posting and begin the application process. Applications must be received/submitted by the closing date (11:59 PM HST) as stated on the job posting.

However, if you do not have access to our system and the closing date is imminent, please send your application documents to rcuh_employment@rcuh.com.

We do not accept unsolicited resumes. You must apply for a specific job vacancy and all application documents should be labeled with the recruitment ID#. Do not send your application to the project conducting the recruitment.

Applicants must include the following as part of their application:

      • Cover letter summary of your qualifications for the position
      • Resume
      • Supervisory References
      • Copy of degree(s) or transcript(s) or certificate(s)

Please note there is a 2MB size limit to attachments to the online application.  Up to ten (10) attachments are allowed per application and can be uploaded to your online application up until 11:59 PM HST on the closing date.

What is an ID#?

Every job vacancy is associated with an identification number (e.g., ID#18111). You must include this number on each document/attachment of your application materials. This number is required to process your application and respond to your questions.

What is a closing date?

Every job announcement includes a closing date.  You must apply online on or before the closing date to be considered an applicant.

What if I don’t have copies of my transcripts or diploma?

Some projects will require all application materials at the time of application. Most projects will accept your transcripts or diploma after application. You may submit them separately by noting the ID# of the position(s) you are applying for. If you are contacted for an interview, you should be prepared to provide your transcripts or diploma at that time. Transcripts and/or diplomas confirming your credentials for the position are required before an official job offer can be made.

What happens after I apply?

You will receive an email confirming receipt of your application. Applications will be reviewed by the project conducting the recruitment. If the project is interested in interviewing you, they will contact you sometime after the closing date. If you need any special accommodations to participate in the interview process, you may request it at that time.

Who do I call if I have specific questions about the job?

Specific questions about a position should be directed to the contact listed under “Inquiries” in the job posting.

What if I forgot my password?

If you previously applied through our online system and do not remember your password, please click “Forgot Password” to request a new password.
