Frequently Asked Questions for Applicants

How do I apply for a job?

You may apply by completing an online application. This can be done at any time. You may also search open positions before creating the online application.

I have previously submitted an application. Do I have to submit a new application?

Applications previously submitted online may be activated for a new position by using the log-in information from the application originally submitted.

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

When completing the application, you will be asked to provide primary information for each of your previous positions you've had. You will have the option to select "See Resume" instead of listing the specific duties of each position.

Will I be able to attach my resume?

After completing the online application and selecting the position for which you would like to apply, you will come to a screen that allows you to do one of two things:

  1. Attach resume, cover letter, references, and other documents in Microsoft Word or PDF format.
  2. Copy and paste or type in resume, cover letter, references, etc.

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

What happens next?
