Directions for Applying at Optima Health

Our online application system is easy. Simply search for the jobs of interest, create a log in ID, and apply.

Keep the following in mind as your browse:

  • Select your positions of interest carefully. You must meet all minimum requirements to be considered.
  • Incomplete applications resumes without an online application, and walk-ins will not be accepted.
  • Jobs are posted as soon as they reach our database, so you can be assured of an up-to-date listing.
  • Positions found in this career search are regular full-time and part-time positions with benefits, and flexi-pool positions with varying hours.

Step 1: Conduct a Job Search

You can search by keyword, category, or posting date. You can also:

  • Review a brief description of the job(s).;
  • Add jobs to your "shopping cart" (or remove from) in order to apply online.
  • Email a job opportunity to a friend (Send to Friend).
  • Create a log in ID to apply after selecting your job(s).

Step 2: Create a Log In ID

The log in process ensures security of the information you provide in your application and lets you complete future applications without having to re-enter all of your information.

You can create a profile, store your resume/CV, and access features such as a job cart and your saved searches stored in the search agent manager.

To create a log in ID, you need to:

  1. Enter a username or your email address (this is recommended)
  2. Enter a password
  3. Re-enter a password
  4. Select a security question from the drop-down menu
  5. Enter an answer to your security question
  6. Click the Create button

Be sure to remember your username and password so you can access the online application in the future without having to register again.

Carefully choose a secret question you would always know the answer to. If you know the secret question and your username, you can update your password.

Once you have created a log in ID (username and password), you can navigate around the site to create and edit a profile, as well as take other actions.

After you search openings and review the position, you are able to select the "Apply for this position" button. You will be prompted to upload a resume, copy and paste a resume or create your profile (application) directly online.

When you have completed the application, you will receive a verification your application has been received.

If you have any questions during this process, click on the Help button for details.
