Q: Can I submit a general application if there is not a current opportunity that aligns with my interest?
A: Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to accept general applications at this time.
Q: Do you accept paper applications?
A: Online applications can be reviewed and processed in a more efficient manner than paper applications. Therefore, we ask that candidates only utilize a paper application if they must due to a disability or lack of computer access (online applications are best viewed via Internet Explorer or Chrome browsers). Paper applications are available at the front desks of our Minnetonka and St. Louis Park offices.
Q: If I have questions regarding a position, can I speak with a recruiter before applying?
A: Due to the volume of inquiries we receive, it is not possible for our recruiters to answer general questions regarding our positions. We ask that candidates review a job posting thoroughly and visit our website for additional information about our programs. If specific questions remain unanswered, please email email@example.com and we will do our best to respond in a timely matter.
Q: I am a former St. David’s Center employee. Do I need to submit an online application to be considered for a position?
A: Yes, please submit an application through our online system for your position of interest.
Q: I am a current St. David’s Center employee who is interested in a different position. Do I need to submit an online application or can I just inform the hiring manager or Human Resources team that I am interested?
A: Current employees must submit an online application to be considered for an alternate position. We also ask that employees inform their current supervisor about their interest in the position before applying. In addition to the online application, feel free to inform Human Resources and/or the hiring manager of your interest in the position.

If you do not have a resume, please enter “N/A” in the resume field. You will also have the opportunity to upload formatted resume and cover letter attachments at the end of the application process.
