UVM Application Process – Details


The UVM employment process relies on the applicant taking the initiative to identify and apply for specific job openings of interest. A careful review of the information below will give you the understanding that you need to conduct your search and apply for employment at the University of Vermont.

The Online Application

They may be helpful in elaborating skills and experiences which are particularly relevant to the job for which you are applying. The resume and cover letter must be submitted online through Please note that uploading a resume does not substitute for completing the application form, and we cannot accept faxed or mailed applications.

Once you have completed one electronic UVM application, you need not complete another each time you apply for an opening. Simply resubmit the same application for each job. (If you wish to edit or update your application, this must be done before you submit it for a specific job–you cannot modify your application for a job after you have submitted it. Instructions on how to edit your application are provided on the jobs website.)
