Creating a New Account
First time visitors must choose "Click here to create new account" to establish a login and password, which will enable you to create a profile, apply for a job or edit your profile. Please be aware the online application system does not allow you to create a profile without applying specifically for a position. Only one profile is needed, no matter how many positions are applied for. Creating multiple profiles may prevent you from receiving updates from us regarding the positions for which you have applied.
Submitting Your Materials
There is not an option to enter and save your information without the system submitting your materials; therefore, once you start the application process, the information will be submitted immediately. In some instances, candidates receive e-mail confirmation of their application materials before they complete the entire application. Should this happen, please continue completing the application. At the time of application, you have the option to upload a cover letter and resume, and we encourage you to do so.
You must provide a valid e-mail address to apply online, as this is how you will receive information about positions for which you have applied. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your approved senders list, address book and/or to your contacts to avoid these e-mails from going into spam folders, as this could prevent you from receiving our e-mails and updates.
If you are an individual with disabilities who needs accommodation, or you are having difficulty using our website to apply for employment, please contact us at Jobs@heifer.org so that we can be of assistance. If you are in the area, please feel free to stop by our headquarters location and let us know you need special assistance with the application process.
Applying for a Position(s)
Allow a minimum of 15-20 minutes to complete the application. The application must be completed in its entirety to be considered.
Listing Employment History
All employment history must be listed on your application. Should you receive an offer of employment, a background check will be conducted to verify all information on your application. Therefore, you must be able to provide all documentation (i.e. W-2's, 1099's, DD Form 214, documentation of self-employment) to support any information you have listed.
Editing Your Profile and Application Information
After you create an account, you can login anytime to edit your profile and application information. You also can apply for multiple positions by clicking on the link for the position(s) of interest and then clicking on the "Apply Online" link at the bottom of the position description. Enter your login and password information when prompted and review your information to ensure it is up-to-date and accurate. Once you have reviewed your profile, close your browser to exit the application.
Closing Date for Position Listings
Position listings are removed from this Web site and applications are not accepted after 5 p.m. Central Time on the closing date of the position or once 200 applications have been received for a position, whichever occurs first.
Heifer International's Recruitment Process
When we have received your application materials through our online application tool, you will receive correspondence via e-mail confirming receipt of your materials. You will receive a confirmation for each position for which you apply. Please note: If you login to make edits to your profile, you will not receive a confirmation e-mail. Confirmation e-mails are only sent out to confirm receipt of your initial application for each position. After your application materials are received, your qualifications will be reviewed relative to the requirements of the position(s).
Your application materials will take approximately two weeks to process after the closing date listed for the position(s) for which you have applied. During that time, we will review all applications, select viable candidates and contact only those individuals selected to meet with the interview committee. When the position is filled or canceled, you will receive notification via e-mail.
Please contact email@example.com for technical assistance or if you need additional information about the application process or open positions.
