How long are jobs posted on the UC San Diego Health System website?
The length of time a job is posted depends on several factors. Is it an internal or external recruitment? Does the applicant pool have a sufficient number of applicants and does it reflect the diverse population of the Health System?
Internal recruitments are posted for a minimum of 7 days and external recruitments are posted for a minimum of 14 days.
If any recruitment does not have a reasonable number of qualified diverse candidates, then it may be left open with an extended deadline. However, a hire for any recruitment can be made at any time after the original closing date even if the extended date has not been reached.

My application was referred. When will I hear from the department?
There is no definite time period. It depends on the needs of the department.

How can I get the name and contact information of the hiring manager?
This information is not released to applicants.
If you have been referred for a position and selected for an interview, the hiring manager will contact you.
