FAQs

How do I apply for a position?

To apply for a position, you need to create a profile on our career website, https://careers.olympusamerica.com/ by clicking on the Open Positions button and creating a profile. Once your profile is created, you can apply to open positions.

How long does it take to create a profile and apply to a position?

Typically, it takes 8-10 minutes to create your profile and apply to an open position.

What can I expect after submitting my resume?

Your resume will be reviewed by our Talent Acquisition team to determine if your background and skills are aligned with the position requirements. If we find that your qualifications match Olympus' needs, you will be contacted by phone or email. We receive a number of resumes for each opening and we are able to respond only to those candidates possessing qualifications most closely matching our position requirements.

I applied to one position already and am interested in another position. Do I need to apply again?

Yes, even though you still have a profile in the system and we make every effort to review previously received resumes, you need to apply to every job in which you are interested.

May I apply for multiple positions?

Yes. Applying for multiple positions of interest to you puts your resume in front of more Hiring Managers. Although some positions may sound similar, each Hiring Manager may be looking for something different in candidates.

I was on your website earlier and I saw a posting, but now it is gone. What does that mean?

Only positions which we are actively recruiting for are listed on our site. If you no longer see the posting listed, we are no longer looking to hire for that opening.

How can I check the status of my application?

You can log into the system at anytime and see the status of your application for which positions you have applied.

I know someone who works for Olympus. Should I send them my resume directly?

Because Olympus is a federal contractor, we must follow a consistent process regarding employment inquiries. As a matter of policy, all applicants must indicate their interest for a position by submitting their resumes through our career center website. Your resume will not be considered if it is not received in this manner. If you are asked to complete an employment application, please list your referral source as that employee. 

My resume has recently changed. How do I update it within your system?

When logging into our Career Center under the candidate profile, you can update your profile, replace your current resume, update your responses to our screening questions and manage your Job Search Agents.

How do I indicate that I am an employee referral?

Within the application, there will be a section asking you how you heard about the position. To indicate you are an employee referral, you will select “employee referral” in the drop down, and put the employee’s name that referred you on the application.

How do I receive information about upcoming recruiting events or important careers information about Olympus?

There is a monthly Talent Acquisition Newsletter that comes out for anyone who is interested in learning more about our upcoming events and important career information.  You can sign up anytime on your profile.

Are unsolicited resumes from search firms or agencies accepted?

No. Olympus does not accept unsolicited resumes. If we wish to engage your business or learn more about your agency, Olympus Human Resources will contact you for further information.

I’ve applied to Olympus before, but now my login won’t work. Why is this and how can I log in?

On May 26th, 2020 Olympus Talent Acquisition launched a new Applicant Tracking System. If you applied to Olympus prior to May 26th, 2020 you will need to create a new profile to apply to any current openings.

What is an Evergreen Requisition?

An Evergreen Requisition is an advertisement for positions that Olympus hires for throughout the year. An Evergreen Requisition is not for a specific job opening. Olympus is building a database of qualified candidates for future opportunities. When a position becomes available we will review resumes at that time.

Why should I answer self-identification questions about my personal identity?

At Olympus, we value the diversity each person brings to the organization and we strive to assure that everyone feels they are treated respectfully and fairly, are valued, have a voice and sense of acceptance and belonging, and are confident and inspired. By understanding the diverse makeup of our organization, we can adjust our strategy and provide appropriate resources, support, and tools to best support each colleague.
