Careers FAQ’s

How do I apply for a position at the Humane Society of Charlotte?

Applying with HSC is easy. Simply navigate to our Open Positions page and follow the instructions listed for the role you’d like to apply for. Some may ask that you submit your resume and cover letter, others that you complete an initial pre-employment assessment along with your documentation. For any role, though, you’ll want to make sure your resume is up-to-date with the most relevant information for the position you’re interested in.

Do I have to include a cover letter?

While we ask for a cover letter with each position, it is not technically required to be considered. However, we strongly suggest you include one expressing your specific interest in working with us. It is extremely helpful to our hiring managers as another way to get to know you apart from your resume.

I’m a current/former volunteer. Should I include that in my application?

Yes!! We are always thrilled to have HSC volunteers who are interested in becoming staff members.

Can I apply for multiple positions?

Yes, you may apply for multiple positions. However, we encourage you to narrow your choices to jobs that truly match your skill set, experience, and interests.

When will I hear from someone?

Hiring times vary depending on many factors, including the number of applications received and the day-to-day needs of the business that the hiring manager must also be attending. We know you are excited about your application and will try to get in touch with you should we feel you’d be a great fit within ten days of applying.

I’ve applied before but was turned down. Can I apply again?

Yes, you may re-apply to any open position. Be sure to include any additional experience or skills you’ve gained since you last applied.

Does the Humane Society of Charlotte have internship opportunities available?

Yes! We currently partner with various local educational institutions including UNCC, Queens University, and CPCC. We offer our internship opportunities during the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters. Please check Handshake or the student job boards associated with your school for the most current roles available.
