Can I save my application before I finish completing it?

You must first complete all of the required fields notated with a red asterisk before the application can be saved. If you run into a time crunch and cannot finish the entire application, you may complete just the required fields and come back later to finish the application and apply for a specific position. Please be certain to go back and complete all the information on the application. An incomplete application will not be accepted. 

At the beginning of the process you are asked to input a user ID and password to uniquely identify your file and establish your individual account. When completing the application, 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 for a specific position. 
You must remember your user ID and password to log back on. Additionally, you cannot create an additional account with the same social security number. Your ID and password should not be shared with anyone. 

How long does it take to complete the on-line application?

The time it takes depends on several factors including the amount of work experience and education you have to enter, how fast you can type, etc. You should allow 20-45 minutes for the total process. However, you can speed up the process by collecting important information about previous work experience, education, certifications, etc. before you start creating your application. If you find you are missing a piece of information requested on the application, you may be able to skip the field and go back later to complete it. If you decide to do this, it is important that you return and complete the missing information BEFORE you apply for a specific job opening. The information on your application, when you apply, will be used to evaluate your qualifications for the job opening for which you apply; please make sure it is accurate and contains all the information requested.

1)   Attach resume/vitae, cover letter and references
2)   Copy and paste or type in resume/vitae, cover letter and references
It's important to read all of the instructions carefully so that you submit all of the attachments required for the position.

If a transcript is requested, how will I attach it?
