You can monitor the status of your application online through your account. If your resume is forwarded to a hiring department for consideration, you will receive an email and your account will be updated. The hiring department reviews the applications and if the hiring department is interested in interviewing you, the department will contact you directly. Unfortunately because of the volume of applications Stony Brook receives, we are unable to respond to each candidate individually regarding the status of his or her application.
