What information will I be asked to provide in the application?
You will be asked to provide personal information such as your name, address, and phone number. You will also be asked to provide
information about your education and previous employment, and contact information relating to your employment history. In addition,
some positions require that you attach an electronic cover letter, resume and transcripts. Please gather this information before
applying to a position.
Can I copy and paste information from another electronic document?
Yes, you can copy and paste text from a Word document directly into the appropriate fields in the application form. Prior to copying
and pasting, please remove formatting – such as bullets or styling – as these will not copy over.
How do I save my application?
You must click “SAVE AND CONTINUE TO NEXT” or “SAVE AND STAY ON THIS PAGE” to prevent deletion of the information you entered into
your application. If you close your browser prior to clicking “SAVE AND CONTINUE TO NEXT” or “SAVE AND STAY ON THIS PAGE”, you will
lose the information on the last page that was not saved but your application and account will be saved.
How do I print a copy of my application?
After completing and saving your application, you will have the option to either manage or edit your application in the menu on the left.
If you click the “Manage Applications” link, next click the option to “View your application”. In a few moments the entire application will
appear in a new browser window. If you click the Edit Application link, you will be able to navigate through the pages until you reach the
final page (with the certification statement). Click the link that says, “Preview Application” (you’ll see it above the “Save” button) and
in a few moments the entire application will appear in a new browser window. Once your application is displayed in the new window, click
“File: Print from your browser menu” to print the application. When you’re finished printing and ready to return to the online employment
site, click “Close Window”.
What if I’ve started my application but I’m not ready to fill out the application at this time?
If you do not want to complete the application at this time, click “CANCEL” at the bottom of the application page.
How do I submit a resume?
You will be able to submit a resume each time you apply for a position. There will be directions prompting you how and when to attach your
resume. Please note that attaching a resume does not substitute for completing the application form.
Will I receive confirmation that my application was received?
Yes, a page will appear indicating that your application was submitted and providing a confirmation number.
Do I need to complete a separate application for each position of interest?
No, only one application is necessary for you to be considered for any position. However, you must apply for each individual position you’re
interested in; your online application will not be considered for any position for which you have not applied. To apply for a position, find
the position you’re interested in, navigate to the “Job Details” page and click “Apply for this Posting”. Be sure to update your application as
necessary before applying for any position.
What is the hiring process?
The hiring process is a term used to describe all the tasks an employer completes to fill an open position. As an applicant, your experience with
the hiring process might look like this: You’ll apply for a position online and a hiring committee will review your application package. Following
the committee’s review of your application package, you may be contacted for an interview. If you successfully complete the interview process,
you may be moved forward in the hiring process which could include checking the references you have provided and performing position specific testing as required.
How will I know if a posting has been filled or cancelled?
How do I begin the application process?
Once a posting has been filled or cancelled, the status displayed for that posting on the Application Status page will change. For further
information, please contact email@example.com.
To begin, please create a username and password that you will easily remember. You may even want to write down your username and password so you can
still access your application if you forget your login credentials.
You’ll need this username and password when you check the status of your application or if you decide to apply for a position with this institution. NOTE: Usernames
and passwords are case-sensitive and should not include spaces.
I’m having a problem attaching documents.
How do I update information on an application I’ve already created?
PDF documents are the format that is recommended for your application documents. If you are unable to attach documents to your application, use these troubleshooting tips:
- Close all browsers, reopen the browser, and clear your browser cache. Without opening any other windows or tabs, log in to your account, open your application and
re-attach the document. This is the most frequent resolution to this issue. You can also paste the document text instead of attaching it but this is not recommended
as formatting does not copy over correctly.
- Documents that contain passwords, digital signatures or other artifacts such as watermarks may not convert properly. If your document contains any of these items,
please print and scan the document, then upload the scanned version to your application.
- The maximum file size is 5 MB. To reduce the file size, scan the document at a reduced dpi/lower resolution setting, and set your scanning software to black and
white instead of color.
If you are still encountering difficulties after trying these workarounds, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
the posting number, the date/time you applied, the text of the error message, and the username for your applicant account.
If you have already created an application and wish to update your information, please click the “login using your existing user name” link on the navigation menu.
Then enter the username and password that you selected when you created your application. Note: Please do not use your browser’s “Back”, “Forward” or “Refresh”
buttons to navigate the site. Instead, use the navigational buttons within the site. For security purposes, this system automatically logs you off when it senses no activity for 60 minutes.
I received a system error. What should I do?
What if I forgot my username or password?
Common reasons for system errors include:
- Too many browser windows open at once. Close all windows but one, then log off and log back in.
- Clicking away from a portion of the application without saving, then returning to the same section. You may have clicked away without saving your work, returned to the page,
and re-answered a question in a different way, which can create two answers where only one is allowed.
- An uploaded document that is either larger than 5 MB, or in a file type unsupported by our system. To avoid this system error, upload a smaller document or convert your document into an approved file type.
- The document may have an additional feature preventing conversion – such as a digital signature, watermark or password field. See the question above for troubleshooting advice.
- Certain characters in the filename (such as slashes) may prevent the document from uploading. Rename the file with no special characters and try to upload again.
If you are still encountering difficulties after trying these workarounds, please contact email@example.com with the following information: the posting number, the date/time you
applied, the text of the error message, and the username for your applicant account.
My password was reset but I still can’t login. What do I do?
If you forgot your username and/or password, click on the “I forgot my username / password” link on the login page. This will guide you through the process of reacquiring your
login credentials. If you need additional assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I need to fill out an application?
Try these things:
- Make sure you’re entering your password with the exact capitalization the system provided to you. The most common cause of login failure after a password reset is entering a
username or password with the wrong capitalization. Please type the password with the exact same capitalization you were given.
- Be sure to type the new password into the password box if you use your internet browser’s auto-save feature. Sometimes browsers will automatically enter an old password;
you’ll need to delete every character in the “Password” box and enter the password you received from your reset request.
