Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q. How do I know if I qualify for a position?
    A. The Allegheny Intermediate Unit specifies minimum criteria for each open position in all advertisements. Meeting the minimum criteria does not automatically qualify you for an interview.  If you are considered for a position, a Specialist from the Human Resources Department may contact you to schedule an interview.  Interviewing at the AIU does not guarantee you will be offered a position.  All applications are kept on file for one year.

    Q. Can I send my resume in for a position that is not currently listed?
    A. Yes. The AIU encourages all individuals interested in working at the AIU to submit their resume and cover letter for any position that may become available in the future. Resumes that are received for positions not currently open are reviewed and filed appropriately for when a similar position becomes vacant.  All applicants must initially send a resume and cover letter to or mail to:  475 East Waterfront Dr., Homestead, PA 15120 Attn: Human Resources.  If you meet the qualifications for a particular position, you will be contacted.

    Q. Do I have to have current Act 151/34/114 (Child Abuse, PA Criminal and FBI) Clearances before I am considered for employment?
    A. Yes. Obtaining current clearances (within one year) is a part of completing the application packet for employment. Any individual that is interested in entering education, or a related field must posses current Act 151/34/114 clearances to be employed by any organization.  

    Q. I am currently in school and would like to set up an internship with the AIU.  How do I go about doing this? 
    A.  For information regarding the possibility of interning at the AIU, please contact Erin Koebel, Director of Human Resources and Labor Relations at 412-394-5957.
