In order to be considered for a position at CUNY, you must complete an application for a specific vacancy. At this time we do not accept applications without a published posting.
Instructions for navigating our jobs system and completing an application are provided in CUNYfirst Job System Instructions.
To complete an application, please keep in mind:
Each job posting has a statement of qualifications we are seeking, both required and preferred. If a qualification is noted as required, we cannot consider your application if you do not have the qualification. A common qualification is an academic degree or diploma (B.A., Ph.D., High School Diploma). Be sure that in your resume and/or cover letter you provide details and be specific about whether you have completed a degree, or if not, how much progress you have made toward completing it.
Some job postings ask for a certain number of years of related experience. Generally, this refers to paid work experience in a position using similar knowledge, skills, and abilities in a function or discipline that is similar to that of the position.
Closing Dates and Timing
Each job posting will either have a Closing Date or the statement “Open Until Filled with review of resumes to begin on (date)”.
For a posting with a Closing Date, the job will come off the system shortly after midnight following that date (i.e., if the posting closes on July 15, it will be removed after midnight on July 16). If the posting says “Open Until Filled”, the job is usually available until one month after the posting date (the posting date is in the listing of available jobs). We cannot accept applications after the closing date of a job posting.
Given the possibility of system outages it is a good idea to apply before the final date. Our system can be unavailable for both planned and unplanned outages (scheduled outages are announced on our employment page).
If you were unable to apply for a position which closed during a systems outage, contact the Human Resources department of the College which posted the position.
