What does "preferred qualifications” in the job posting mean?
All positions require specific education, experience and skills. To meet the requirements for the position, applicants must have these required qualifications. Preferred qualifications are skills or experience that go above and beyond the required qualifications. They are not required for consideration, but are qualifications that the hiring manager may prefer an applicant possess. Applicants with preferred qualifications may be considered more qualified than an applicant who does not possess them.

My online application was referred to the hiring manager, but I still have not been contacted. Is there further action needed on my behalf?
No further action is needed. Being referred to the hiring manager may not result in a candidate being interviewed. The hiring manager reviews all candidates and determines the most qualified candidates to interview based on the application, resume and any required supporting documents.
