Hiring steps

Here is a brief overview of our hiring steps.

Step 1: Job Advertising Current job opportunities are posted in the career section of this web site on the Job Opportunities page. In addition, some of the job opportunities may be advertised on external websites.

Step 2: Application Screening All applications received are screened and rated against the qualifications outlined in the job ad. Applicants whose resume and cover letter best demonstrate how they meet the qualifications to do the job will be invited to continue in the hiring process.

Step 3: Interview This is your opportunity to show us how you best meet the qualifications outlined in the job ad. This is where we evaluate the candidates invited to continue in the hiring process. This may take the form of a phone and/or potentially an in-person interview.

Step 4: Selection of Successful Candidate We assess and rate candidates based on the results from the evaluation process in Step 3 to select the best-qualified candidate to fill the position. We are looking to hire the candidate whose qualifications best meet the requirements to do the position and whose values align with St. Joseph's Health Centre.

Step 5: Offer to the Successful Candidate If you are the successful candidate, we will contact you with a verbal offer of employment. Upon acceptance, we will arrange an appointment time with you to review information such as your start date, position classification, starting salary, and, if relevant, your bargaining unit.

Step 6: Position Filled We have completed the recruitment process and successfully hired the top candidate into the position.
