Application Process – what to expect

Step 1: Explore Our Current Career Opportunities

Please visit our Careers page frequently for new employment opportunities including student internships! Our Job List is updated with changes as soon as they happen, making this page the most accurate place to find our current list of available positions. Wish there was an easier way? Set up a Job Alert! This feature will automatically send you emails when new positions are posted (based on your specified criteria). Look for the link to set up your personalized Job Alert at the top of the Search Results page.

Step 2: Apply Online

All positions, including internships, require an online application. Be sure to check those application deadlines carefully! The first time you apply you will be led through steps to set up a Candidate Profile which includes a resume and cover letter, employment history, education and certifications (if applicable). This process will take a little extra time* – to make it go smoothly we’d encourage you to have all of this information readily available. Once your profile has been successfully completed you will be able to apply to future positions as a “returning applicant”, saving you precious time. You are able to log in and update your profile, resumes and cover letters at any time allowing you to always have the most up-to-date information on file. Our best advice to candidates…

  1. before you apply, read the entire job description carefully, paying special attention to any requirements and/or qualifications
  2. customize your cover letter to the specific position
  3. ensure your application and resume clearly show that you meet the requirements for the position *PLEASE NOTE: the application system DOES NOT have a “save and complete later” function. Please be sure you have enough time to complete the application process in one sitting (typically 30-60 minutes).

Step 3: Following Up On Your Application Status

At Sierra Nevada, we take pride in the quality of all that we do and strive for excellence. This means we are seeking something special in each of our talented candidates and we believe that requires a little extra attention to each and every application. We know what it is like to wait anxiously for a response and try to contact every candidate as soon as we have any updates. It may take us some time, but rest assured we will be in contact. After all, we were each candidates, too!
