Thank you for your interest in UBC.
To find out the status of your application, log back into myCareer and select My Career Tools.
We encourage you to submit your application online so you can track your application status and receive email notification. If you require assistance with submitting your application online, please contact UBC HR.
If you are unable to use the online system, you can drop off your application in person. If you do not have a resume, complete the Application form [Current UBC Employee | External Applicant]. Hard copy application forms are also available at the HR Service Centre.
Your application must identify the Job ID and Position Title you are applying for. All applications must be received by the closing date of the posting / ad.
See UBC HR for mailing address and campus locations / hours of operation.
The profile for current UBC faculty and staff is extracted from your employment data. If it is not correct, go into Faculty and Staff Self-Service and adjust it. These changes will update your profile.
Check with your Human Resources Advisor to ensure your recall status has been recorded in the Recruiting system. Once it has been set up, you can apply for jobs. Where applicable, the system will automatically prioritize your application because of your recall status.
Click on the check box to the left of the posting, open the posting description, and then click on Save Job.
Human Resources do not provide information about the hiring manager. Hiring takes place within the department.
Once an application is submitted, it can not be modified. However, you can withdraw your application and re-apply. Withdrawing an application and re-applying will not affect your application’s standing.
You can delete resumes attached to postings that have been filled. However, your former applications and resumes are never available to the current round of hiring managers.
Once you submit your application, you will receive an email confirmation. You can also sign on to the Careers Home (internal applicants; external applicants) and visit the myCareerTools section to see a list of all applications you have made and their status.
There are three states of online application status: Applied, Reviewing Resumes, and Hired/Position Filled.
The status changes from Applied to Reviewing Resumes when the recruiter begins the resume review process. The status will change from Reviewing Resumes to either Hired (if you are hired for the position) or Position Filled (if you are not the selected candidate).
Please note that may take some time for the status to change from Reviewing Resumes to Hired/Position Filled – it depends on the department’s hiring timeline. Human Resources does not have any information on the department’s hiring timelines.
