Prioritizing Mental Health During Your Job Hunt


We know looking for a job can be stressful. From submitting an application, to the interview itself, and whatever the next steps may be, each part of the process represents a potential point of stress. Add that to any other stresses or challenges in our personal lives, and the whole process can sometimes feel overwhelming.

First, take a breath. Remember that you are interviewing a company just as much as they are interviewing you. Use this time to explore the company’s mission and values and evaluate if they line up with your own. Explore the company’s benefits and culture. Will you be supported as a person and employee? Does the company offer the flexibility that you need or desire?

At Centene, we want the process to be as seamless and stress-free as possible. That's why on this website you’ll find in-depth information on the hiring process from application to onboarding. You’ll also find a list of frequently asked questions to guide you through your candidate journey. You can also read about the interview experiences of other candidates on our Glassdoor and Indeed profiles. From viewing the status of your application to requesting accessibility accommodations, we strive to make the candidate experience as stress-free as possible.
