External Applicants

Q: I’ve submitted my application. What’s next?
A: Our recruiters receive and review applications for each opportunity. This process typically takes 2-3 weeks. You can check the status of your application at any time, by logging into your profile.
Q: Should I submit an application for each position I am interested in? Or can I just apply once?
A: Please submit an application for each position you are interested in. To make things easier, your profile is saved in our system and you can make changes at any time. Be sure to update your profile regularly, so our recruiters have the most up to date information as you are being considered for opportunities with us.
Q: How long is my application in the system?
A: Your application will remain in our candidate database indefinitely. It is important that you apply for each position you are interested in, as jobs become available. Our recruiters review applications and resumes associated with current open positions.
Q: I have applied for multiple positions and have not heard back?
A: We do our best to respond to each individual applicant, but due to the high volume of interest we are not able to personally contact everyone. Candidates who appear to be a strong match for a position will be contacted by one of our recruiters via phone or e-mail. Candidates who are not selected to advance in the interview process typically receive e-mail notification. You can check the status of your application by logging into your candidate profile.
Q: Do job postings expire?
A: Yes, each position will be posted until the job has been filled, or until it has been open for 90 days. After 90 days, the position will be reposted.
Q: I submitted an application to a position that is no longer posted, but my status shows “considering-pending department review.” Does this mean the position has been filled?
A: Occasionally, for positions that receive a high-volume of applications, the recruiter will remove the job posting to review each application received. This does not mean the position has been filled, and indicates that you are still in consideration for this opportunity. As you move through the process of being considered for the position, your candidate profile will be updated. Please visit the candidate portal regularly for status updates.
Q: What does “Resource” or “PRN” mean on a posting?
A: We use Resource and/or PRN to indicate a position that does not have guaranteed hours. This means there is no regular schedule and a Resource or PRN employee will work as needed.
Q: Can I deliver my resume directly to a recruiter? Or speak to a recruiter about my application?
A: To provide you with the best possible experience, all applications and resumes must be submitted via jobs.northside.com. If you are a strong potential candidate, one of our recruiters will be in touch.
Q: I missed a call from the general HR phone number and the caller didn’t leave a message?
A: Sorry we missed you! Our recruiters will make every effort possible to connect with a well-qualified candidate. This includes leaving voicemails with contact information, calling back and following up with an e-mail.
Q: I am locked out of my candidate profile. What do I do?
A: Please call us at 404-851-8745. We are happy to help!
