In order to provide professional growth opportunities, Lehigh University requires posting of classified managerial and professional staff positions within the University for at least five working days before hiring a candidate to fill the position.

Managerial and Professional Staff Positions:

  • Your application and/or resume will be considered prior to external candidates if it is received within the five-day posting period.
  • The hiring supervisor in the department will review your qualifications.
  • If your qualifications and background closely match the requirements for the position for which you are applying, you may be invited for an interview by the hiring supervisor.
  • If you are interviewed but not selected for a position, you will be notified by the hiring department that the position has been filled.

NOTE:  Hiring decisions are made by the hiring department, not by Human Resources.

Please remember to:

  • Review the detailed job posting for each position of interest to you. All postings appear on the Jobs@Lehigh site.
  • Apply only for positions for which you have most or all of the requirements.
  • Submit complete and accurate information on your online application, including salary history and/or references where requested. You may upload a cover letter and/or resume to the Jobs@Lehigh system (recommended). Other documents such as letters of reference or work samples may also be uploaded.

  • Include in your cover letter, resume, or application, all job-related information explaining your skills, experience, and ability to successfully perform the duties of the position for which you are applying.
  • Provide telephone numbers where you can be reached during the day.
