Frequently Asked Questions


A resume is not required to apply for a position at University of Utah Health Hospitals and Clinics. If you do not wish to submit a resume, our application system is designed to allow the manual entry of your information into each field.

If you complete an application manually or submit a resume, make sure your information is up-to-date with the following details: current contact information, all education and associated dates of completion, all work experience including responsibilities and associated dates of employment (start and end dates, including months and years), and any relevant certifications or licenses.

The University may rely on your application or resume in setting your offer amount if an offer of employment is made. Once a wage/salary offer is made, the offer amount may not be subject to renegotiation based on information that is submitted later. Please note that your application profile will only retain the most recent resume uploaded, and your candidacy and potential offer amount may be impacted by an outdated resume.

No, it is important to include all work history as University of Utah Health Hospitals and Clinics may rely on your resume to qualify you for the position and, if an offer is made, set the offer wage/salary.

Applicant profiles can be edited manually, or by uploading an updated resume. The resume submitted is linked directly to your applicant profile, therefore a maximum of one (1) resume per profile or application is allowed. If you would like additional tips on which resume format is best to use (e.g. Chronological, Functional, Combination, etc.), please visit our tools library for more resources.

Cover letters are optional and are not required to apply for a position. A well-prepared cover letter can be a great way to briefly introduce yourself to the hiring manager and describe why you feel you are the best fit for the position. If you would like to submit a cover letter along with your resume, it is recommended to upload these as one single document, preferably in either Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format.

You can update your information by logging in to your existing profile and clicking the “Update Your Profile” button. This will bring up your profile page, where you can make updates to your personal information and/or resume. When finished, simply click Update Profile at the bottom.

Compensation and salaries may vary depending on the role or level of position you are applying for. Generally, after an interview has been completed by a department, a request for the offer by the department is submitted to HR for review. Before an offer is extended to a candidate, our talent acquisition team will work closely with our compensation department to formulate a competitive offer. It is important to ensure your resume is up to date and accurately provides all information such as work history, dates of employment, education, and certifications to make sure you get the most competitive offer.

There are many different ways to learn more about a position or specific role. For example, using your professional network to build relationships with department managers, co-workers, and team members from our talent acquisition department can be a great way to gain further insight. Our talent acquisition team members are knowledgeable and can provide additional guidance and insight to help answer questions about job opportunities. In addition, we warmly welcome you to join us during our annual Career and Job Fair events.

Sponsorship for work authorization presents complex issues under federal immigration law. Whether a particular position qualifies for sponsorship and whether the particular unit is in a position to meet the obligations of sponsorship is determined on a case-by-case basis. We welcome all interested applicants to apply for positions, but we cannot guarantee that sponsorship will be available in all cases.
