Application FAQs

Searching for Open Positions

How do I search for positions?

You may explore general opportunities on the Winston-Salem Medical Center campus by using the search functions under General Employment Opportunities. Other opportunities may be explored under Other Opportunities.  

Can I submit a resume for positions that might be available in the future?

Our system does not allow for resumes to be submitted separately from the application process. To be considered for future opportunities, we recommend that you check the Jobs website on a regular basis for new postings.

Do you have internships?  

At this time, Human Resources does not coordinate internships. However, some departments within the Medical Center arrange for their own interns. You may wish to contact departments that fit your area of interest to find out if they have internship opportunities available. You can find information about individual departments on the Wake Forest Baptist Health website. For more information, call 336-716-4668.

Should I include a cover letter with my application?

  • After logging in, go to My Career Tools.
  • Go to Cover Letter and Attachments.

  • The system will guide you through the process of attaching a cover letter.

Note: Your cover letter will remain in the system and will automatically attach to all applications until you delete it. To delete a cover letter or other document:

  • After logging in, go to My Career Tools.
  • Go to Cover Letter and Attachments.
  • Click trash can icon in the Delete column.

After You Submit an Application

How can I make sure that my application was submitted successfully?

When your application has been submitted successfully, you will receive a message indicating that your application has been received. If you do not receive this message, you may have saved the application rather than submitting it. To view your submission status:

  • Login
  • Go to My Career Tools
  • Under Applications in Process, the Status column will indicate "Applied" or "Not Applied."
  • To complete the application process for a saved application, click on the link for the position name and then hit Submit.

How can I update an application that I've submitted?

Once your application has been submitted, it cannot be modified.

How can I check the status of my application?

You can check the status of your application through our Jobs website. If the position is still posted and you have met the application requirements, you are still a candidate for the position. If the position is no longer posted, that means it has been filled. Human Resources is unable to answer individual questions about application status. 

Can I speak with a recruiter directly?

Due to the high number of applications received by the Medical Center, our recruiters are unable to speak with job seekers individually.

How will I know if a position has been filled?

If the position is no longer on the Jobs website, that means it has been filled.

How long will my resume remain active?

Your resume will remain in our system indefinitely, until you delete it. However, your resume will not be reviewed for future positions outside the application process.
