Timelines vary with each position. Hiring can take a few months, and in some cases, longer.

Log in to UTSA Careers and click on Job Applications to view your application status.

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.

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.

If you are having issues creating a profile, email Talent Acquisition and use the following subject line: Profile Assistance Requested. Add an explanation of the issues you are having.

Refer to the Register and Apply job aid for instructions.

Refer to the Reset Password guide for instructions.

Your username and password may contain any combination of characters, including letters, numbers and special characters.
