How do I apply for a position at ASCO?
To apply for open positions, submit your resume using our online submission process.
What happens when I submit my resume?
When you submit your resume using our electronic submission process, you will be redirected to a “Thank You” screen confirming our receipt of your resume. That means an ASCO recruiter has access to your information as part of our database. Your resume will be compared to the criteria for the position you have selected. If you are evaluated as qualified and selected as a candidate, one of our recruiters will contact you. If there is no current position that is a good fit for your skills, your resume will be retained in our database and matched against other open positions.
How will I know if I am selected as a candidate?
If you are selected as a candidate, one of our recruiters will contact you within a few weeks.
How do I check on the status of my application/resume?
You can track the positions for which you have applied using our online database and login information. To confirm we have received your application, you will receive a confirmation email. In addition, the position will be posted in your profile with the notation "submit." If your resume is a good match for an open position, you will be contacted for a preliminary telephone interview within a few weeks. If your skills are not a match for a current position, your resume will be kept in our database. Once the position has been filled, you will notice the position is no longer listed in your profile.
Can I apply for more than one position?
Yes. When you are logged in, you can “search openings,” click on the additional position that you would like to apply for, and then click “add to my jobs.” There is no limit on how many positions you can apply for.
When will I be contacted about my resume submission?
If your resume is a good match for an open position, you will be contacted for a preliminary telephone interview within a few weeks. If your skills are not a match for current positions, your resume will be kept in our database. Due to the high volume of resumes we receive, we are not able to contact all applicants personally. However, to confirm we have received your application, a confirmation email will be sent to you.
How should I prepare for an interview at ASCO?
In order to be prepared, we suggest that you research our organization and bring copies of your resume to distribute if necessary.
