Application Process

How to Apply

  • View current job openings by visiting our websites for internal or external candidates.
    (You may view current openings without creating a Career Profile.)
  • Read through our Tips for Applicants.
  • An application kiosk is available in the Human Resources Department, located on the first floor of Crowell Hall (at 820 N. LaSalle Blvd., Chicago).

Applying Online

After viewing the job openings, apply online using the “Apply” button found at the bottom of each job posting. You can apply for more than one job at a time (use Favorite Job stars).

You will be asked to register as a New User. Each applicant must have a valid email address.

If you must leave the nine-step application process before you have completed and submitted your application, use the “Save as Draft” button. For security purposes, the system does time you out after 20 minutes of inactivity, so click “Save as Draft” periodically as you work. In your Career account, you’ll find in “My Activities” “Submitted” or “Not Submitted” applications.  

Use the “Submit Application” button to finish the application process. Once you have submitted an application, you cannot go to it to make any changes.

If you are an individual with a disability, or someone who needs assistance applying for a Moody job opportunity through this website, you may e-mail us at or contact our employment staff at (312) 329-4237.

Your Career Home Page  

After you have created a Career account, your personal home page will display each time you Sign In (log in). This page will show your application history in “My Activities.” You can also see if you have notifications; go back to job searches; and make changes to your account information.

Resumes and other application documents will be hosted here, allowing you to use them again to apply for other open positions. Each position requires a separate application.

Recruitment/Hiring Process

There are five main steps in the typical recruitment/hiring process:

  1. Jobs Posted
    Open jobs are posted and applications are accepted until the qualified applicant is hired (unless a closing date is indicated in the job posting).
  2. Applications Reviewed
    Applications are reviewed to identify those applicants whose qualifications most closely match the job requirements.
  3. Interviews
    These applicants are invited to participate further in the selection process which typically includes interviews with Human Resources and the hiring manager/team, and may also involve additional assessment methods such as tests or presentations.
  4. Reference and Background Checks
    After the interview/assessment process, pre-employment checks, such as reference checks, are conducted on the top candidates. Background check(s) must be completed before an offer will be extended.
  5. Offers and Notifications
    After the selection decision has been made by the recruitment team, all interviewed candidates are contacted either to offer the position or to let them know they are no longer being considered.

Many factors can affect the timeline for the recruitment process and each situation is unique. We endeavor to inform applicants of their status as soon as possible.
