Second openings in Covenant Health/Alberta Health Services

by hcho7136 hcho7136 (New) New


I applied for a job with Covenant Health last week as an external candidate, and my potential supervisor at Covenant Health told one of my references that the position I applied to was already taken by internal candidate, but she said she will post a new opening soon and that I should apply for that position.

Given this information, how likely is that this "another job posting" will be for a regular opening? Is it much more likely that this another job posting will be casual?

Thank you,

Nobody other than the unit manager knows if the line would be casual or an fte. New positions are created, temporary lines become permanent, people take maternity leave. Positions can be cancelled by the service manager who oversees the unit manager.

And again, internal applicants will take priority.

You need to expand your search for work rather than focus on one employer.
