New Candidates for Employment
Search for Employment Opportunities
You will click the job title and then ‘apply’ on any opportunity of interest to complete an application for employment.
Register for an Account & Record Your Username/Password
You register for an account by providing your name, email, phone number, and creating a password. Please record your username (email address) and password, as you will need this information to check the status of your application(s) for employment.
Update ‘My (Candidate) Presence’ & Resume
After creating an account, new candidates will click on ‘My Presence’ (top right of the webpage following account registration) to complete their profile with work experience, education, skills, and upload a resume. Your candidate presence will help to support quick application to multiple opportunities and, especially, if you anticipate returning for seasonal employment each year.
Check the Status of Your Application
After you have applied, you may check the status of each application by signing into your account with your username (email address) and the password that you created at the time of application for employment. You will then navigate to ‘My Presence’ (top right of the webpage) and ‘My Applications.’

Didn’t Find the Right Opportunity?
Join Our Talent Community: If you did not discover an opportunity of interest today, you may still register for an account and update ‘my presence’ to create a profile with your contact information and resume. The Talent Management Team may use this information to consider you for future opportunities. Please note: Joining our talent community is not an application for employment, rather, a great way to stay in touch – if you are interested in a published opportunity, you must apply to be considered for that opportunity. You are invited to check the website frequently for new positions.
More Information on the Hiring Process
Hiring processes are variable by position and department. If you are qualified for an opportunity, you will be contacted by a member of the Talent Management Team at Chautauqua Institution. This process typically starts with outreach to qualified candidates for an initial phone screening and, for candidates who are selected to advance, an in-person or virtual interview with a hiring manager or managers.
We hire thousands of employees who are passionate about our mission for dynamic career (and seasonal) employment opportunities — as such, you may not be contacted for your “first choice” position. The Talent Management Team may forward your application to a hiring manager(s) in consideration for other positions for which you are most qualified.
If you are selected for employment, you will be directed to complete an offer letter and an onboarding process using the same login (email/password) that you used to complete your application at chq.org/employment. Please retain this information for easy access in the future.
