How to apply

Resumes and Cover letters

Along with your resume, your application material is strengthened with a cover letter. Cover letters help us learn a little bit more about you, but do not need to be extensive in length. While you may include many items, here are three questions we recommend you address. 

  1. Why are you interested in applying for the position?
  2. What is attractive to you about working at Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity?
  3. What special/unique personal or professional experiences or skills do you have that would help us meet our mission?

Cover letters should be attached to resumes and submitted as one document, if possible. Your resume will not be disqualified if it is submitted without a cover letter.

Selection process

We read through all applications and sometimes we get hundreds of applications for one role. Depending on the number of applications we receive, it can take up to a couple of weeks after the deadline to read the applications and select a group of candidates for interviews. We select candidates based on the strength of match of the position needs and the candidate’s skills and experiences, objectives, and narrative (cover letter).  

If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by our Human Resources (HR) department to arrange a time for the initial phone screen. Subsequent rounds of interviews will be explained by an HR representative as appropriate.

Why outlining this process is important to us

Due to the high volume of open positions and candidates, the HR department is often unable to follow up individually with all applicants. In most cases, you’ve reached this page because you are interested in getting more involved with Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity. For this, we are grateful and want to provide as much clarity around the process as we can.

Thank you for your interest!
