Will Human Resources contact me regarding my application status?

The Retreat's HR team is unable to personally advise every applicant about the status of her/his application. The names of applicants whose skills best meet the requirements of a given position will be forwarded to the appropriate hiring manager who will further assess each candidate's qualifications and arrange for interviews. Applicants who are not selected for interviews will receive an electronic letter thanking them for their interest in working at the Brattleboro Retreat.

Positions are removed from the list of postings as they are filled.

How long does the hiring process take? Who makes the final decision?

The length of the hiring process varies. Once your application has been screened by HR it may be forwarded to the hiring manager for his/her consideration. Each unit/program/department has its own process that may include several face-to-face interviews. The final decision is made by the hiring manager. Staff members in HR will then proceed with the formal job offer process.

What happens to my application once a position I’ve applied for is filled?

Applications are kept on file indefinitely. If your skills match another position, then we encourage you to reapply.

How do I know if I am qualified for a particular position?
