Q: Do I have to fill out an application?

However, the more information you provide, the easier it will be to effectively evaluate your skills, abilities, qualifications and previous dates of employment. In order to be considered an applicant, you must complete and submit an online application for a specific position opening.
Q: If I have a disability, should I note it on the application? When should I notify the University of the disability?
A: The disability should not be noted on the application, however you may contact the Office of Human Resources and Payroll at (701) 231-6293 if you need to request an accommodation in completing the application or thereafter. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), North Dakota State University will provide reasonable accommodation to applicants who make their requests known in advance.
Q: Why can’t I apply for the same position more than once? It was posted more than once.
A: If you have already applied to a position and it is reposted, the system will not allow you to reapply as this would create duplicate information. Your original application will be considered for the position opening. Contact email@example.com if you have further questions.
Q: I accidentally withdrew my application from a position and the system won’t let me reapply. What can I do?
A: Please be extremely careful when withdrawing your application from a position. Once you have applied to a position, the system will not allow you to reapply. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.
