Common questions about the application process
What if I want to apply for more than one position?
When you have successfully completed your first application submission, you will automatically be directed to a page that contains a link back to the Career Opportunities page so that you can continue applying for positions. Since you've already created an account and are logged into our system, your personal information will automatically be displayed on the Submit Your Application page when you apply for other positions. All you need to do is update your resume and/or cover letter if needed and click the "Submit" button.
I missed the closing date. Can I still apply?
If the closing date has passed, you can call us at 780.471.7466 to determine if the selection committee is willing to accept late applications. There is no guarantee of this, so make sure you apply before midnight of the closing date.
If you're selected for an interview
Those selected for an interview will be contacted directly with a list of dates, times and the location where our selection panel would like to meet with you. The interview process is typically conducted with a panel consisting of a Human Resource representative and one or more members from the department that posted the position. For most positions, NAIT uses behaviour descriptive interviews, whereby candidates are formally interviewed by several people. Some positions may require formal and informal interviews.
