FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I find out about job vacancies with RCUH?
Job seekers can find out about current job vacancies through our on-line database, e-recruit (go to www.rcuh.com and go to the Work tab, click on “Job Postings” and enter Job Search criteria or click on “Search”) or stop by our Human Resources office. E-recruit is updated daily and includes a listing of all web-recruited job vacancies.
Announcements are also listed at the WorkLinks offices, Alu Like, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Work Hawaiʻi, Network Enterprises, Job Help Store, Joint Employment Services (Pearl Harbor), and various RCUH project sites.
Selected job announcements are listed with various local, national & international publications. The local publications most often used are the Sunday publications of the Honolulu Star Advertiser, Hawaiʻi Tribune Herald (Hilo), West Hawaiʻi Today (Kona) and the Maui News.
How do I apply?
You can apply on-line by going to Current Job Vacancies and apply for current job vacancies, attaching your resume, cover letter and other required documents (see application requirements below) or by completing the on-line application. You can apply for multiple vacancies in one submission.
We require that you apply through our on-line system. However, if you do not have access to our system and the closing date is imminent, please send your application documents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Applications must be submitted by the closing date of the job announcement.
See applicable application requirements below:
On-line applicants submitting resume:
- Include cover letter summary of your qualifications for the position
- Resume, salary history and names, telephone numbers and addresses of three (3) supervisory references
- Copies of degrees, transcripts and/or certificates to qualify for position
Please note there is a 2MB size limit to attachments to the online application. You will be allowed up to ten (10) attachments per application. You can upload additional documents to your online application up until 11:59 p.m. HST on the closing date. You must include the recruitment ID# of the position that you are applying for on each application document.
What is an ID#?
Every job vacancy is associated with an identification number (e.g. ID#12222). You must include this number on each document/attachment of your application materials. If you apply through e-recruit, the system will automatically note the ID#(s) of the job vacancies you are applying for when you select it. This number is required to process your application and respond to your questions.
What is a closing date?
Every job announcement will include a closing date. To be considered as an applicant for the position, you must apply online on or before the closing date.
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?
If you provided your email address on your application you will receive an email confirming your receipt of application for the position(s) you applied for.
Applications received are forwarded to the project conducting the recruitment to review and conduct interviews. If the project is interested in interviewing you, they will contact you directly some time 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 inquiry person noted on the job vacancy announcement.
How do I apply for future vacancies?
You can check the Current Job Vacancies to view an updated listing of the current job vacancies and apply for any new positions you may be interested in. Our on-line application system allows you to apply for multiple positions in one submission. Each time you apply through our on-line system, you are required to either attach your application (resume, etc.) again or if you previously completed the on-line application, you will have the opportunity to update your application.
What if I forgot my password?
If you previously applied through our on-line system and do not remember your password, please request for your password to be sent to you by going to “Login Help” on our Applicant Portal and enter your “User Name.”
