Employee Referral Program Did You Know?
Often our best source of qualified candidates, CHOP's Employee Referral Program offers $2,000 bonuses to Breakthrough Makers who refer successful new hires. Once your connection submits their referral, you'll receive a unique application link via email.


Our job descriptions include requirements, responsibilities, and a link to apply. You'll be asked to include:
Resume Update your resume to demonstrate your qualifications for the role. You can upload either a .doc, .docx, .html, .pdf, or .txt file (1MB max). 
Experience & Education Add your work experience and education information (including your school or university, degree, field of study, certifications, and professional licenses).
Questionnaire You'll be prompted to answer questions that help us determine if this is the role for you. Once completed, you'll receive a thank you email.
Talent Acquisition is dedicated to helping Breakthrough Makers grow their careers. Current employees can apply to new positions via Workday.
If selected to move forward, a recruiter will contact you for a phone or one-way recorded video interview. After completing this screening process, qualified candidates will be invited to interview virtually or at a CHOP location.


Behavioral based interviewing helps us recruit top talent who share CHOP's iCARE values: Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, Excellence. We'll ask questions that help us get to know you and your past work experiences. For example:
Integrity Tell me about a time you had to comply with a policy or procedure that you did not agree with. 
Compassion Describe a time when you had to adapt to work effectively with people who were different or had unique needs. 
Accountability Tell me about a time when you made a mistake on the job. What did you learn or do different because of that experience?
Respect Tell me about a time when you were able to step into another person’s shoes in order to discover their unique perspective. 
Excellence Tell me about the project or task you completed that you were the most proud of.
For most questions, we'll be eager to hear what the background of the situation was; what action you took; and what the result was.
One-Way Recorded Video Interviews For certain positions, we invite qualified candidates to expand on their skills, experience, and goals through a one-way recorded video interview. You'll receive a text inviting you to interview from our talent platform, Hirevue. Depending on the role you applied for, you may receive additional prescreen questions from "Lewis," our hiring assistant. 

Your invitation will also include a link to practice and explore your video setup options. Any internet-connected device with a front-facing camera and microphone can be used to complete your interview.
