Hiring Process

Qualified candidates are screened and interviewed by the supervisor within the hiring department. Depending on the pool of applicants and each school or department's hiring timeline, it may take a week, a month or longer for selected candidates to be contacted. As an ever-changing and growing institution, new opportunities become available regularly. Please check the Job Opportunities web page often. We encourage you to apply for positions in which the job qualifications and your skills and goals best align.

Review the following steps about Regent University's hiring process. (expand/collapse each of these)

Regent University only accepts applications and resumes for open positions posted on our Job Opportunities web page.

The application may be submitted online or by mailing or faxing a hardcopy. All contact information is located on the Job Opportunities webpage. A cover letter and/or resume or curriculum vitae may also be submitted and are highly recommended to further highlight knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Applications are tracked by the Human Resources database and then forwarded to the hiring manager for his or her review. (For student positions, applications and resumes may be given directly to the point of contact listed in the student job posting.)

It is up to the manager's discretion to contact any applicants for further information or to schedule an interview. Due to the large volume of applications received, applicants not selected for an interview may not be contacted.

For the final candidates, at least two of the applicants' references will be contacted by the hiring manager.

A background check will be requested prior to an offer of employment. The potential candidate will be notified via email to provide necessary background check information and authorization. Human Resources will process the background check and notify the hiring manager upon completion.

Once all employment considerations have been approved by Human Resources and the department head, an offer of employment may be extended to the selected candidate.

The new employee will be given information regarding when to start, where and when to arrive, and what documents to bring to verify eligibility to work in the United States.


Unfortunately, we are not able to respond to every candidate who applies due to the volume of resumes we receive. Even candidates who have been contacted and interviewed may experience periods of time when you do not hear from us. This doesn't mean we aren't actively working on your application; it simply reflects the nature of our process and the thoroughness of our searches.

New positions are posted as soon as a new job opening is available and approved by the vice president for human resources. Updates may occur on a daily or weekly basis. Continue to check the Job Opportunities web page for the most current job openings.

The application may take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. The more information you provide, the easier it will be to effectively evaluate your skills, abilities, and qualifications. It may be advisable to have any applicable resources accessible while completing the application (i.e., employment history, related knowledge, skills and abilities, Christian testimony, reference information, etc.).

You must complete an application for up to three positions for which you wish to apply. If you wish to submit a resume in addition it can be sent to jobs@regent.edu.

Yes. You may send your resume and/or cover letter to hr@regent.edu. Clearly specify the position for which you have applied.

You can select up to three specific positions per application. If you would like to apply for more than three please fill out additional applications.

Human Resources is the central submission point for all employment applications and supplemental application materials. You should correspond directly with Human Resources' staff unless a hiring manager contacts you. Employment applications for student positions may be submitted directly to the school or department point of contact listed on the Financial Aid Job Board.

You will not be able to save your application at any stage of the process. A copy of your completed application will be emailed to you, and you may save the email any way you prefer.

You may address your cover letter to "Hiring Manager" instead of a specific individual.
What should I do if I have to make changes to my application after I've submitted it? (i.e. phone number changes)
Send any corrections to hr@regent.edu. Clearly list your name, position for which you have applied, and the nature of your correction. Your email will be sent directly to the hiring manager informing him or her of your changes.

Unless otherwise noted within the job description listed, jobs are kept open until filled. Once a job is removed from the Job Opportunities web page, applications will no longer be accepted or forwarded to the hiring manager for consideration.

Due to the decentralized nature of the selection process, Human Resources does not track each applicant's status. Human Resources may only inform you of the date that your employment application was forwarded to the hiring manager. The hiring manager will contact you if you are selected for an interview.

The process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. This may be dependent on a number of factors, including but not limited to: the size and quality of the applicant pool, urgency to fill an open position, related budget planning, etc.

We do not accept unsolicited resumes or applications. You must submit an application for a specific position listed on our website.

See the list of acceptable documents that you may bring to complete the Form I-9 in order to determine eligibility for employment in the United States.
