BAHS Application

 

Your profile photo should be a simple, professional picture of yourself.

Resumes must be uploaded as Word documents (.doc or .docx).

If you are unable to upload a photo or resume, it may be too large of a file. Try down-saving or converting to a smaller file size to upload.

When selecting your skills, choose those that you feel best represent your experience. Please be aware that this is not a comprehensive list and your resume and interview will be primarily used by recruiters to match you to potential jobs.

What if I do not hear from BAHS for sometime and fear that I have been overlooked?

Although we do our best to provide each applicant our feedback, we are unable to respond to everyone. In most cases, the main reason you have not heard from us is because of any one, or a combination of the following:

1. You may be applying for positions that require more experience than you currently have.

2. You may be applying for various roles that are outside of your normal role of experience.

3. You may be applying for positions that require a specific qualification such as a CPR certificate, valid driver's license, a doula certification, etc. that you currently do not possess.
