How to set up job posting notifications

Setting up notifications isn’t hard, but it’s harder than it should be.


Our CBA (collective bargaining agreement) requires that Kaiser offer jobs to SEIU-UHW members first, for a period of 7 days. At the end of the 7-day period, the job should go to the most senior applicant (if there is one):

603 3. Qualified Applicant.


If there is only one (1) qualified applicant within the seven (7) calendar day posting period, the Employer will notify the Employee of his/her acceptance.


604 4. Two or More Applicants.


If two (2) or more qualified applicants submit a bid for a vacancy within the seven (7) day posting period, the position will be awarded by seniority in the following order of application, paragraph 606 – 610.


2012 – 2019 SEIU-UHW / Kaiser Collective Bargaining Agreement

There are two important implications of these paragraphs:

  1. The most senior applicant could fail to get the job, if he or she applies after the 7-day posting period (and a less senior applicant applies during the 7-day posting period).
  2. If there are two or more internal applicants but neither of them applies during the 7-day posting period, the job does not automatically go to the most senior applicant.

In short, your bidding rights apply only during the 7-day posting period. If you’re looking for a new position, you should set up a job posting notification to ensure you apply during the 7-day posting period. See below for a step-by-step guide to setting up a job posting notification.


  1. Go to
  2. Click “My Profile”, at the top of the page.
  3. Enter your National User ID (NUID) and web single sign-on (WSSO) password.
  4. Click “Sign on.”
  5. At the bottom right-hand of the screen, click on “Access my profile”, under “Candidate Profile.”
  6. Click “Job Posting Notification.”
  7. Select the small checkbox next to “Send a job posting email notification whenever a new position matching my employment preferences is posted.”
  8. Under “Employment Preferences”, select the job level(s) and schedule(s) in which you’re interested. You can select multiple job levels, and/or schedules, by pressing and holding the Ctrl key, on a PC, or the Command key, on a Mac.
  9. Click “Save and Continue.”
  10. Click “Employment Preferences.”
  11. Select a job field.
  12. Click “Save and Continue.”
  13. Select a state and city.
  14. Click “Save and Continue.”
  15. Select a region and organization (KFH, KFHP, or TPMG).
  16. Click “Save and Continue.”
  17. At the top, click “Review and Submit.”
  18. Click “Submit.”

Finally, return to the “My Job Page” and click “Access My Profile” to review your profile and confirm your selections. You should receive an email notification whenever a matching job is posted.
