The Application Process
To apply for a position at Sibley, you must fill out an online application and complete the online pre-employment assessment that is attached to the application. If you do not have access to a home computer, you may use a computer at your local library.
To gain access to our online application, you will need to register with Sibley. You will need a user ID, a password and registration information, including name and email address. If you do not have an email account, sign up for a free account through your favorite search engine, such as Yahoo! or Google. Please be sure to save your user ID and password because you will need to use both to check on your application status.
Once you have registered, please follow the online instructions and input application information, including educational background, work history, license/certification and work references. Complete work history, dates of employment, job title, duties and supervisor names must be entered on the application.
You will also have the option of uploading your resume, which will automatically fill in portions of the application with required information, or you may cut and paste your resume onto the application form. There is also space on our online application for you to key in your cover letter. Note: Although you have the opportunity to upload your resume, it is the work history on the application that we will use to determine your eligibility status and salary grade.
Thank you for considering a future with Sibley Memorial Hospital. We look forward to reviewing your resume and application information.
