How to Apply

Stanford employs more than 10,000 staff who support our mission in a vast array of significant ways. The university recruits talent year-round and annually fills more than 1,000 staff positions, mostly full-time.

1. Search
Search by job field, job location, keyword search or requisition number. Use the "Add" and "Remove" buttons to select and de-select multiple items.
2. Resume
A resume is required and can be uploaded or manually developed in our online application system. Acceptable formats for uploading a resume are Word (.doc) or PDF (.pdf) files. Scanned resumes and other formats are not acceptable and will not be read by our system.
3. Cover Letter
Cover letters are recommended. However, they are not required. To include a cover letter, you must upload a Word (.doc) or PDF (.pdf) file at the attachment step of the application.
4. Apply Online
Our online application is the final step in the process. New users can create an account when applying for a position by selecting "Apply Online" from the job posting and then selecting "Register as a New User". The application requires that you provide contact information, salary requirements and work eligibility information, and requests demographic/race/ethnicity information.
5. Next Steps
Once you've submitted an online application, you will immediately receive an automated email confirming receipt of your application. A hiring manager will have access to your application materials immediately. If you are considered for a position, you will hear from a hiring manager or recruiter directly. Otherwise, you may not hear from us.
Additional Information
Our system does not allow for you to track the progress of your application or your candidacy for a position. If you have the need to modify your original application, you may login to modify the submission if the job posting is still active.

If you are a finalist for a position, you may be subject to pre-employment screening and a background check. For candidates hired to work on certain federal contracts, employment is contingent upon supplying documentation via the E-Verify system.
