General FAQs


  • When will I hear back on the status of my application?

    Because each hiring manager has a different time frame for filling a position, there is not a definite time when we can guarantee that you will hear back. If a manager is interested in interviewing you, you will be contacted by phone. You do not need to apply for a position more than once.

  • Can I fill out a paper application?

    Yes, you can apply with a paper application at our Administration building. However, applying online is the fastest, most efficient way to get your application to one of our hiring managers. If you have already applied for a position online, you should not submit another paper application for that same position.

  • Will you automatically consider me for positions other than the ones I applied for?

    We may consider candidates for positions that they have not specifically applied for. However, we recommend that you apply for each position that interests you, even if they have the same job title. There are often multiple openings under the same title, but each has a different position number.

  • A position that was recently posted is no longer on Cornerstone’s website. Is it still open?

    If a position is no longer posted on our website, the hiring manager is no longer accepting applications.

  • I have applied for several positions, but have never been contacted. What can I do?

    We typically receive dozens of well-qualified candidates for each position. Unfortunately, we cannot hire, or even interview, every applicant who applies. Here are some things to consider when applying for a position:

    • Do your qualifications match the desired qualifications for the position? Note that some positions may require, or prefer, a candidate to be bilingual due to the business requirements of our organization.
    • Is your application customized to fit the position? Make sure that your relevant qualifications are easy to find; please don’t assume the manager knows what job duties you performed in other positions.
    • We recommend including a cover letter specific to the position for which you are applying.

  • What are the differences in the provider recruiting process?

    Providers have to complete credentialing once a contract is signed; this must be finalized before employment begins. On average, the credentialing process takes approximately 4-6 weeks.

  • Is Cornerstone an approved NHSC Loan Repayment Site?

    Yes, because we are a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), many of our health center sites are approved by the NHSC for loan repayment program recipients.

  • Do I have to be Board Certified to apply for a position?

    No. While applicants need not be Board Certified, we require applicants to be board eligible, and Board Certification must be complete, before the start of employment. A valid New York license is also required before the start of employment.
