I’ve submitted a job application. What’s the next step?
After you’ve applied, we’ll send an e-mail acknowledging receipt of your information.
Your résumé will be reviewed for open positions in a timely manner. Due to overwhelming responses to certain positions, it may take several weeks to complete this process. We appreciate your patience.
Then we’ll contact prospects we'd like to learn more about. Unfortunately, we're not able to make personal contact with all prospects in the selection process. You can always log in to your application profile and check your status for jobs you've applied to.
If you’re selected for an interview, we’ll contact you to outline the next steps in the process.
If you’re not selected to move forward in the recruiting process, you still may be contacted about other opportunities that align with your profile or interests.
What should I expect during the interview process?
Though the conversations vary from team to team, following is a general overview of what to expect:
Can I modify my job application information at any time?
Yes. You can return and modify your job application information whenever you like. Your information is secure, so you’ll need to log in to make changes.
I wanted to apply for a position that I saw here, but now it's not listed. May I still apply?
We regularly post new positions and remove positions that are no longer open or have been filled. If you’re not able to find the job number for a specific job, this means that position is no longer active and we’re no longer accepting applications for it.
Will you help me with relocation?
Depending on the level and type of position, we may have the ability to offer relocation packages to out-of-town candidates.
Does Ciena offer visas or work permits?
In most cases, candidates must be authorized to work in the country in which they are applying.
How does Ciena support new employees?

All new hires will have a required corporate orientation, provided virtually to complete in their first week. Meetings will be scheduled for the new hire with key individuals for a functional overview of the organization and role.
If the new hire is in sales, they are scheduled for sales training according to the regional schedule.
