   Frequently Asked Questions for Job Applicants

Can I save my application before completing it?

You must first complete all of the required fields (identified by a red asterisk to the left of the description) before the application can be saved. If you do not have time to complete the application, you may complete just the required fields and come back later to complete the application and apply for a specific position. Be sure that when you reach the last page of the application you click "Save Application." You may return later and edit the application before applying to a specific position. You must remember your user name and password to log back on.

Do I have to fill out the work experience and education if I plan to attach a resume?

Yes. The information you provide on your online application will be the primary information used to evaluate your qualifications for each job for which you apply.

Will I be able to attach my resume?

If the posting requires an attached resume, you will be asked to attach an electronic version of your resume at the end of the application process.

It is important to read all of the instructions carefully so that you attach all of the required documents for the position.

Can I make changes to my application?

Yes, you can update your application at any time. To make changes to your application, log into the system using your username and password and click on Manage Application.

How do I print my application?

Before submitting your application you will have the option to view it. When your application opens in a new browser window, using the tool bar at the top of your computer screen, click on File | Print or use the printer icon and follow the prompts on the screen to print your application.

How do I apply for a job?

The application process has three steps:

  1. Creating a login user name and password.
  2. Creating your online application. This can be done at any time. You may also search open positions before creating the online application.
  3. Apply for a specific position using your online application.

How soon will I hear something?

Applicants will know immediately if they meet the minimum educational and work experience requirements.

What happens next?

When you have completed the application process, your application will be reviewed by the hiring manager and selection committee. The hiring manager and selection committee make the decision as to which applicants are interviewed and which applicant is selected for hire.

I missed the job closing date - can I still apply?

Once the job closing date has passed no applications will be forwarded to the hiring manager and selection committee. Please continue to visit the applicant site and apply for new jobs as they become available.

Can I apply directly with the hiring department?

No. Human Resources is the central intake point for all university vacancies. Only those applicants applying through Human Resources via the online employment site will be considered.
