4. How long do jobs stay posted on the Careers Portal?

Positions will remain posted on our Careers Portal for a minimum of seven days, or until they have been filled.

5. I am interested in one of your positions that I saw posted on another website, but I don’t see it on the WellSpan Careers Portal. How do I apply for it?

When a position is no longer posted on our Careers Portal, it means that it has been filled and that the application process has been closed.

6. Can I update or change my application after I submit it?

You can make changes and add attachments to your profile, but you cannot add or make changes to the application for a particular position once it has been moved to an interview stage.

The Careers Portal will only accept your resume as a Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx) or Adobe PDF (.pdf) document.

You can create free email account through Gmail, Outlook, Zoho, or any of a number of other services online.

  • Manage your contact information, including:
    • Address
    • Phone number
    • Email address

10. What is a “source,” and why am I required to select one when filling out my application?

The “source” lets us know where you saw the position advertised or where you heard about the position.

11. I forgot my username and password. How do I retrieve this information?

Your username is the email address you selected when you first registered. If you forgot your password, click on the link below the Login button, and a temporary password will be emailed to you.

12. Can I apply for a position through the Careers Portal using a mobile device?

The Careers Portal does not support applications using a mobile device. However, you have the option of creating your profile, which you can later use to apply for a position from a desktop or laptop computer.

13. I’m getting an error message that says, “Field HR Org Required.” How can I fix this?

Clear your browser cache, and then close and reopen the browser. Navigate back to and click on the Job Listing link to go to the WellSpan Careers Portal. Once there, search for the desired position and continue the application process. It is best to visit the WellSpan Careers website directly rather than use a link that’s posted on a different website.
