Application Process for Clerical & Support Positions
Applications are accepted for posted vacancies only. Applicants for a specific job posting must apply online at www.tntech.edu/jobs and complete a Tennessee Technological University application and electronically upload all required documents to be considered an applicant for the position. Hard copy and/or faxed materials will not be accepted unless specifically requested in the Special Instructions to Applicants. Submission of these materials is the applicant’s responsibility. APPLICATIONS WITHOUT ALL REQUIRED MATERIALS ARE INCOMPLETE AND WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
Each section of the application form should be completed; type N/A if not applicable and/or see resume if requested information can be found on your resume. It is imperative that information relative to education be complete; do not refer to resume for this section of the application form. It is a Class A misdemeanor to misrepresent academic credentials. (T.C.A. Sec. 49-7-133) Materials cannot be submitted after midnight of the deadline to apply date.
Applicants applying for different positions must apply separately (applications are stored online) and a separate set of documents must be electronically uploaded as required in the application procedure on the job announcement for each position. Typing scores are kept on file in TTU Human Resources for five years (scores cannot be older than 5 years) and need not be provided with each application. All application materials become the property of TTU and will not be returned.
The university is required by federal/state employment reporting regulations to maintain a record of applicant demographic data including gender, race, age, disability, and veteran status. Submitting this information is optional.
APPLICATION REVIEW PROCESS
After the application deadline date, the employment manager will review the applications for completeness and determine which applicants possess the minimum qualifications. Applicants who do not fully meet the minimum qualifications will not be considered. Meeting the minimum qualifications does not assure applicants of an interview.
Complete applications of applicants who possess the minimum qualifications will be sent to the department for review. Applicants selected for an interview will be notified by telephone usually within 2-4 weeks of the application closing date. All applicants will be notified by email when the position has been filled.
