Frequently asked questions

Searching and applying for jobs


I’ve submitted my job application/CV what can I expect next?
After you’ve applied, we will send you an e-mail acknowledgement that your information has been received. Our recruiters do their best to review the candidate pool for open positions in a timely manner. Due to overwhelming responses to certain positions, it may take several weeks for the recruiter and/or hiring manager to complete this process. We appreciate your patience during the review process.
How will you check if I am suitable for a Position with AJMN?
After applying online, how can I get in touch with a hiring manager or recruiter?
Actually, you don’t need to follow up. If you’ve applied for a job online or submitted your profile, we’ll review your application and get in touch if there’s a good match.
How can I check the status of my application?
You cannot check your individual applicant status on a job; however, you can check the general status of a job posting to see if it is still open.
Why have I been asked to provide additional information after applying for a job? I have already submitted a Career Profile.
Your Career Profile provides us with general information about your background and interests. When we consider your application toward a specific job, we may need more detailed information that will help us assess your skills as they apply to the requirements of that job. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by a recruiter who will outline the next steps in the process. If you are not selected to move forward in the recruiting process, you will be notified by e-mail.
What should I expect during the interview process?
The interview process is one of our best opportunities to get to know the potential of a candidate, and for the candidate to get to know our people and our businesses. We use competency based interview, psychometric testing and assessment centres but there are a variety of other selection tools we use where necessary. You will be given details of any assessment when you are invited to interview. You’ll be asked questions about your academic and work experiences, and you’ll have a chance to ask some questions to us. It will be most helpful for you to know about our Network, in particular the specific position of interest. You should also have a good sense of what value you think you may bring to our business and be prepared to offer examples of your past achievements or successes.
I was not selected for the position I applied for will I be considered for other suitable positions?
Yes. By completing a Job Application on our system, your background will be considered (and potentially selected) by recruiters in the future. To increase your chances of being considered for future open jobs, we recommend that you return to this site and apply for new positions you find. You should also be sure to select the automatic e-mail notification option within your Career Profile.
