Careers FAQ

Getting Started

Having problems using our application tools? This page provides answers to frequently asked questions.

I want to apply for a job at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, but I am directed to the Fred Hutch website. Why?

+

As a part of SCCA, Fred Hutch supports all human resources for SCCA. This means the job listings are combined and we share an application system.

I’m having trouble viewing a job listing after clicking on a job on the Job Openings page. What should I do?

+

Make sure your browser is set to allow cookies. If it isn’t, change your browser options to allow cookies, exit your browser and then restart it. If you still can't see the job listing, empty your browser cache, exit your browser and then restart it. (Emptying the cache is easy, but the steps will depend on your browser and your computer. You can easily find instructions online.) The job listing pages work best when viewed in Firefox, Chrome or Safari. Internet Explorer is not recommended.

How will I know when a new job opening has been posted?

For staff positions, you can create a profile and sign up to receive email notifications when new jobs in your area of interest are posted. To do so, log in, go to your dashboard and click Manage Your Email Subscriptions. Select your areas of interest, and then click Save.

How do I log in if I already have a profile?

Log in to your iCIMS account.

If you are a faculty applicant:
Log in to your Interfolio account.

I forgot my account password. What should I do?

If you have not yet created a profile, you will see options for doing so. You can populate your profile with information from your social media account (Facebook, Google or LinkedIn) or enter the information manually. If you already have a profile, log in using the link in the upper-right corner of the page for the job you are interested in.

We do not accept applications or resumes via email or hard copy.
 

When uploading a resume, can I cut and paste from a Word document?

No. We require that your resume be uploaded as a complete document. If you do not have a resume to upload, you can apply for a job by populating your profile with information from a social media account (Facebook, Google or LinkedIn).

If you are a staff applicant:
Log in to your iCIMS account.

Can I apply for a job that I saw on your site but is no longer listed?

+

Do I need to provide a cover letter and/or resume for each job opening I apply for?

+

Our system accepts only one uploaded resume per candidate. However, you can replace it with an updated one or submit a second resume as an additional attachment. (See the instructions under the previous question.) Our recruiters review all attached documents.

Cover letters are not required for every job. Please read the instructions in the job description to find out whether one is required. You can add a cover letter as an additional attached document.

Do I need to complete a separate application for each job I apply for?

+

No. You can use the same profile to apply for multiple jobs. Please note that some positions may call for additional documents.

Next Steps

How can I be sure my online application was received?

+

Once you submit an application, you will receive a confirmation email. You can also log in and view your dashboard, which will show all of the jobs you have applied for, along with the application status and associated dates and times.

What happens after I’ve submitted an application?

+

We keep jobs open until they are filled. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we cannot respond to every inquiry about the status of job applications.

If you meet the requirements for the job, your application will be considered along with those of other qualified applicants. If we are interested in interviewing you, an HR representative will contact you using the phone number or email address you provided.

I accidentally withdrew my application for a job that I am still interested in. What should I do?

+

For staff jobs:
Log in to your iCIMS account, go to your dashboard and click View Current Job Opportunities. If the job is still listed, you can reapply.

For faculty jobs:
If you accidentally deleted your application in progress, you can go back to view the job and click Apply Now, and you will be able to resubmit your deliverables.

+

There is no set timeline for setting up interviews. If you are a strong candidate for the job, we will contact you about next steps.
