Recruitment FAQs for Applicants
How do I find out the status of my application?
Log onto your profile at http://www.slhn.org. Enter your user name and password. Results for each position that you applied for are listed in the section "Application Status". Please note that your application may be in the "Review" status for some time, as internal applicants who apply within the first seven days of the posting are given priority consideration.
What happens to my application when I click the "Submit" button?
Your application is sent electronically to the requisition. Should you meet the minimum requirements of the position, you will be asked to take the CARE assessment. You will be directed to the SHL/PreVisor website (our vendor for the assessment) to complete the assessment. Once the assessment has been completed, your application will be available for viewing by the Recruiter and Hiring Manager.
How can I be sure that you received my application?
You will receive an email notification from us that will indicate your application has been received. You will also see the position listed on your Profile, by checking Application Status.
Must I continually check the website for new positing?
You may set up email alerts, which will notify you when a position is posted that you are qualified for. Email alerts are effective for three months.
Why did I not meet minimum qualifications for multiple openings?
Each posting has specific qualifications. If those qualifications are not met, you will receive notice by email that you did not meet the minimum qualifications for the particular position.
If I submit one application, will I be considered for multiple openings?
No, after you create your profile, you must "apply" to each specific opening that you are interested in. Each opening is tied to a particular job or requisition number and you must apply to that specific opening to receive full consideration. Go to the heading "Find Jobs" to see which positions are available. You may search by "Position Type", "Location", "Entity", or "Job Number".
How can I increase the chance that I will be selected for a interview?
Make sure your profile is complete, up-to-date, truthful and free of errors. Be sure that you have listed at least two work-related supervisors as references. Apply only for jobs that you are qualified for, based on the job requirements.
How long will it be before I hear from someone?
We receive about 85,000 applications per year from both internal and external applicants. Sometimes it takes a few weeks to review and interview an potential internal applicants. It may be up to a month or longer before you see a change in your "Application Status" or get contacted by a recruiter. Your patience is appreciated.

Yes, you may continue to check the Application Status on your Profile.
How will I be contacted?

Per diem/reserve mean that there are no budgeted hours for the position; that you will be scheduled on an "as needed" basis. Some weeks this could mean that you will have forty hours, some weeks none, some weeks eight hours. Schedules var depending on the needs of the department.
