    How to Apply FAQs

    How do I request an accommodation that would assist me in applying for a job opening? 

    To request an accommodation related to the application process, please send an email with your name and your preferred contact information and method to careers@premera.com. A member of our Talent Management team will contact you to discuss how we can assist you with the application process.

    What career opportunities are currently available? 

    To view a listing of career opportunities, you can search our job listings. You can choose to narrow your search using the search fields provided.

    How do I submit a resume? 

    Each job posting you view after searching our job listings will have a button that will allow you to apply with a few different resume options. You can copy/paste resume text or upload a new resume. When you complete the online application, be sure to choose a source, letting us know how you heard about us, and fill in the other required information.

    Once you hit the submit button, your resume will become part of our searchable database. Submitting your resume more than once will not increase your chance of being contacted. We will contact you if your skills and qualifications match a position we are trying to fill.

    If I update my resume, can I send in another version? 

    Yes. You may send in additional or updated versions of your resume when you apply online. You may not delete your resume once you have submitted it.

    Why can't I submit my resume via U.S. mail or fax? 

    We receive thousands of resumes, and paper resumes take much longer to process. Resumes received via our online response form reach the database almost instantaneously. You could miss the window of opportunity for a position because of a processing delay.

    Why am I prompted to fill out additional information when I apply for some career opportunities but not for others? 

    For certain positions, we may ask for additional information to help us determine if you are a suitable match for the position and this information assists in the screening process. These questions will be included on the “Complete Application” page when you apply for a specific job or set of jobs.

    I'd like to include a cover letter with my resume, addressed to the appropriate individual. How can I find out the name of the appropriate individual? 

    It is not necessary to address a cover letter to a specific individual when you apply. If you would like to include a cover letter or personal statement you may do so, by navigating to your “Careers Home” page and clicking on the “Cover Letters and Attachments” link.

    Can I submit a resume without applying to a specific job opening? 

    Yes. You can use the link on the careers home page to submit a resume for general consideration. Once you submit your resume you will be in our searchable database. Submitting your resume more than once will not increase your chance of being contacted. The only time you should send us another copy of your resume is if the resume includes updated information.

    How do I know if you received my resume? Can I check the status of my resume submission? 

    Once you have submitted your resume, you will receive an email confirming your submission. If a problem occurs during the transmission of your resume, a pop-up window will appear with the error or reason for the problem. You will be asked to resubmit your resume at that time.

    We regret that due to the number of inquires we receive, we cannot respond personally to everyone who submits a resume to us. A representative from HR will contact you if your skills and qualifications match what we are looking for.

    I tried to submit my resume but the Web page indicated there was an error. What should I do? 

    At this time, attachments are accepted with the following extensions: .doc, .txt, .pdf, and .rtf. If you tried to submit an attachment in a different format, please reformat or rename and reattach your file. Attachments larger than 28MB are not accepted at this time.

    Do I need to register online to perform a job search? 

    Before registering online, applicants can:

    • Search for job openings

    How do I register? 

    To register online, applicants must create a user name and password and confirm the password. Applicants only need to register for an account once. They can use their user name and password to sign in to their account regardless of which site they use to access their account.

    Applicants can change the password for their account by using the “My Profile - Change Password” page.

    Where do I get login help? 

    If applicants forget their user name or password after registering, they can access the “Login Help” page. On this page, applicants can:

    • Get a new password.

    In the “Forget Your Password?” group box, applicants enter their user name in the “Enter Your User Name” field and click “Get New Password”. The system creates a new password and sends an email notification to the applicant that contains the new password. If the applicant has not provided an email address, a message will appear stating that the applicant doesn't have an email address and must register for a new account.

    • Find their user name.

    In the “Forget Your User Name?” group box, applicants enter their email address in the “Enter Your Email Address” field and click “Find User Name”. The system sends an email notification to the applicant (provided there is an email address for the applicant in the system) that contains their user name. If the applicant has not provided an email address, a message will appear stating that there is no record of the applicant's email address.

    What do I do if I get the error: "Your Resume Could Not Be Parsed at This Time"? 

    Try renaming your resume or other document ensuring the file name is less than 64 characters. If you are still having problems submitting your resume, please send an email to careers@premera.com with the resume or document you are trying to submit.
