Experience in the trades is not a requirement to apply. However, if you do have trades experience or education be sure to note it on your resumé and application. UVA FM's website can serve as a resource for applicants to familiarize themselves with FM projects and initiatives.

Applications will only be accepted online.

As part of the application, the following documents and information are required:

  • Cover letter
  • Resumé
  • References: Name, phone numbers, and/or email addresses of three non-family former colleagues and/or supervisors who can attest to your skills and qualifications. Recent students may use a teacher or professor they have worked with closely. Up to five references may be submitted.
  • Letter of recommendation from someone other than a family member. Additional letters of recommendation are optional.

Be sure to include all requested documents, as well as any previous trades experience or education you may have. Applications that do not contain all required documents will not receive full consideration.

Phone interviews will be conducted after applications are received. In-person interviews will be scheduled after the application period closes. Following interviews, finalists undergo background checks conducted via UVA Human Resources. Letters are then sent with formal offers or encouraging applicants to reapply the following year.
