Application Tips

What can you expect when applying for a job at Meadowlark? Our human resources department reviews all applications and resumes before reaching out to qualified candidates. When you submit a resume or application, it may take us a few days to get in touch. Someone from our HR team will email or call to find out a little more about your availability and preferences. For example, CNA applicants can indicate preferences for shifts and type of care, such as long-term care or memory support.

This simple screening helps us determine the best fit between candidates and possible placement at Meadowlark. From there, we’ll schedule an interview. Usually at least two Meadowlark employees participate in interviews.

“Try to be as flexible as possible,” said Alexa Goforth, Human Resources Assistant. “We have different openings for various shifts and times. The more open you are, the more likely we can find a place for you.”

Sometimes we think qualified candidates might be a better fit in another department or household. If that’s the case, you might be invited for a meet and greet with a different department.

If there’s a great match, we’ll be happy to extend an offer and welcome you to the Meadowlark family.

Helpful Tips

Ready to apply? Here are some tips to help you stand out in the application process:

  • Make sure you spell check your email and resume, and that all your information is current and correct.
  • Dress to impress during the interview. We love the advice to dress for the job you want, not the job you have. A good rule of thumb is to dress a level above regular attire. (At Meadowlark, our attire is business casual.)
  • Relax and be yourself. We know it’s easy to be nervous in an interview, but remember you’re there to tell us more about yourself. Nothing scary about that!
  • Be prepared to interview with several people. We often have two or more Meadowlark employees participate in interviews. Take a deep breath and remember the point above: Relax and be yourself!
