For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: All applicants who apply online with Devereux can login to check their application status anytime. Just follow this link: http://devereuxcareers.appone.com/CheckStatus.asp Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I like to see that a candidate has done their research on the company and the position. Receiving a resume tailored to the specific job they're applying for tells me they put in the extra effort to be considered and are truly interested in THIS job, not just any job. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: It's important to make sure you include all relevant experience (work experience, internships, volunteering) that are relevant to the job you're applying to. If you don't think you meet the minimum requirements, often non-work experience can also qualify you - but it needs to be reflected on your resume, or there's no way we can show you qualify. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: In our field of behavioral health, working with children and adults, there are specific job requirements candidates must meet in order to work in certain positions. These requirements are set forth by Devereux and/or external agencies who provide us with licenses to provide these services. Therefore, there is minimal flexibility with certain positions, so you must meet the minimum requirements listed (education/experience) to be considered. Depending on the state you're applying in, other disqualifications may be related to your ability to receive fingerprint clearance or pass state background checks. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.

There are LOTS of questions around resume dos and don'ts. There's so much advice out there that it can be overwhelming to try and figure out what's the correct answer.
