The definition of an applicant at NYU is as follows:
- The individual submits an expression of interest in employment for a particular position;
- The employer considers the individual for a particular position;
- The individual’s expression of interest indicates that the individual possesses the basic qualifications for the position; and
- The individual, at no point in the employer’s selection process prior to receiving an offer of employment, removes him or herself from consideration.
Completing job application prior to hire:
It is University policy that the applicant must sign a completed job application. An application is considered complete only if there is a full response in all required fields.
If you have any questions about the procedures outlined above, please contact the Deputy Director of Talent Management.
Job application retention:
1. While the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) requires retention of applications for two years, the University requires a minimum of three years.
2. All electronic applications are maintained in PeopleAdmin. The Office of Talent, Learning and Organizational Development will retain them for a minimum of four years.
