Below are some common questions asked when applying for a career with Holy Redeemer Health System. If you have a question that is not included below, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-819-9222.
Q: When and how do I find out about my application status?
A: An email notification will be sent to the address that you used to register on our website when applying for a position online. The email will indicate your application has been successfully submitted. Should the recruiter and hiring manager see you as a strong potential candidate, a follow up call will be made to you. Due to the high volume of applications, we are not able to notify all candidates of their status. Please be assured that if you received a successful transmission email, your application was received.
Q: Will you hold onto my application for other positions?
A: Although applications are stored in our applicant tracking system and we can refer back to them if necessary, we recommend you apply for each specific position in which you are interested. Each individual may have up to three active applications at a time.
Q: How can I start a career if I don’t have experience?
A: Even if you do not have experience, let your application shine by allowing it to stand out and paint a picture of you as a unique candidate. Include a cover letter that contains your interests and highlights all relevant experience (including job history inside and outside your field of interest) and remarkable accomplishments in both your education and work experience. Significant involvement in extracurricular activities is helpful for a new graduate. If you have special certifications, feel free to note those as well.
Q: Should I drop off my resume in person?
A: No, it is not necessary to drop off your resume in person prior to being contacted for an interview. All interested candidates are required to complete an online application and this allows your information to be reviewed by the correct recruiter. We do encourage you to please include your resume and cover letter with your application so we may review everything together as a full package. Please also bring a hard copy of your resume for each interviewer should you be scheduled to come in for an interview.
Q: My employer does not know I am looking for new opportunities. Will you be contacting them?
A: We only contact current employers prior to a job offer if given permission by the applicant. If you are not comfortable with us contacting your current manager, it is helpful to provide alternative contact names (prior managers, current colleagues, human resources, etc.). However, upon acceptance of a job offer, we are required to reach out to your current employer/manager to complete a reference. Your job offer is contingent upon that reference being completed.
Q: Where is Holy Redeemer located?
A: Holy Redeemer Health System has several locations throughout the Philadelphia area and New Jersey. For maps and directions, please visit the preparing for your interview page.
Q: Are there resources for Nursing Assistant Training at Holy Redeemer (Pennsylvania only)?
A: Yes. Holy Redeemer has teamed up with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Red Cross to provide Nursing Assistant Training at Holy Redeemer St. Joseph Manor. The program is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The chapter has a Pennsylvania Private School License and guarantees clinical classes with a ratio of one instructor to ten students.
