You can still apply online even if you do not have a resume. You will come to a point in the online application process where you will be asked if you have a resume to attach or not. By checking that you do not have a resume to attach, the system will bring you to a page where you can type in your most recent experience (Name of Organization, Job Title, and Years).

4. I applied online. How can I be sure that you received my resume?

If you applied online, you should have received a message verifying receipt both on the screen after you clicked "submit" as well as a message to the email account included in your application.

5. If you submitted an application through email, mail or by fax, please be advised that we do not accept applications this way. Please apply online at www.bidneedham.org.


 

6. I have submitted my resume online. Will I hear from someone in HR, and when can I expect a response?

By applying online, your application will be reviewed promptly by our recruitment staff. If you meet the qualifications of the position and we believe that there is a potential match of skills and experience, we will contact you within approximately two weeks.

7. I am interested in working at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham, but I don't see an open position that fits my qualifications online at this time. Is there anyway that I can submit my resume anyway?

No, unfortunately. All applications or resumes must be in response to a job that is currently posted on our site. Unsolicited resumes, or materials requesting general consideration for any position, will not be considered to be applications and will be discarded. Applicants must request consideration for each vacant position. Please check back to our site frequently to see if an opportunity is available for you.

8. There are a number of postings for the same or similar positions online. If I am interested in all of these opportunities, do I need to apply to each position?

Yes. Please apply to each posting for which you are qualified and have an interest. This will ensure that you are given proper consideration for every opportunity for which you have an interest.

9. What positions do you list online?

All full-time, part-time and per diem opportunities at the Hospital are posted online.

10. What does Per Diem mean?

Literally translated it means "per day." Per diem schedules offer employees the opportunity to be on staff at the hospital, without the commitment of a full-time or part-time schedule. Per diem employees are scheduled on an as-needed basis and are not eligible to receive benefits.

11. I have been called for an interview. How should I dress for my interview? Is there anything specific I should bring with me?

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham prides itself on being a professional organization. Please dress professionally for your interview. We also ask that you bring with you multiple copies of your resume and have contact information for your professional references with you. Professional references are people to whom you have reported or worked for in the past. Colleagues and peers are not considered professional references.

12. Where should I go for my interview?

When you are called to schedule your interview, you will be advised at that time where you should report for your interview.

13. Is there any information I will need to provide to show my eligibility to work?

You must provide original documentation which establishes your eligibility to work in the United States as required by Federal Law. Additionally, you will be required to undergo a criminal background check, pre-employment health screening, reference checks and verification of certification, licensure and/or registration.

14. Do you offer onsite parking?

The Hospital has free parking available for employees on- or near-site. You will be directed where to park when your appointment is set up.
