Review our frequently asked questions to gain more information regarding our online application process.

You will need to log into your account and click on “Your Applications.” You will see a list of the applications you have submitted and the status of each of them.

If the status of your application is “In Progress,” there is nothing further for you to do. Your application has been received by the hiring department for review. The decision timeline is at the discretion of the hiring department; the Office of Talent Acquisition is not privy to that information. The status will remain “In Progress” until the hiring department has reached a decision at which time the status will change to “Position Filled.”

The Talent Acquisition Office does not review applications. If you meet the minimum qualifications, your application is automatically sent to the hiring department. Your status will be “In Progress.”

The length of the recruitment and screening process may vary from position to position. Should review of your qualifications result in a decision to pursue your candidacy, you will be contacted by phone or email from the hiring department.

Close dates are indicated on the posting as applicable. Positions are advertised for a minimum of five (5) business days on our job website. After five (5) business days, positions can be closed at the discretion of the department.

The desired start date is when the department would like the new hire to start. The hiring process could take longer than the department anticipated. Once a decision has been made, you will be contacted.

You will not be able to make any edits to your application once it has been submitted. Please review your application before it is submitted to ensure all information is accurate. Please do not withdraw your application or create another account to make edits.

If your application has already been submitted, you will not be able to add or delete documents from your application. Please review your application before it is submitted to ensure all information is accurate. Please do not withdraw your application or create another account to make edits.

The system will only allow you to apply to a position once. Once you have started, submitted, or withdrawn an application, you will not be able to apply again. Please do not create another account.

If you have decided that you no longer want to be considered for the position, once you have submitted your application, you are able to withdraw the application. You will click the “Withdraw” link. Once you have applied and withdrawn your application, you will not be allowed to reapply for the position. Please do not withdraw to edit your application.

You will need to click on “Create Account.” Click on the green “Create Account” button. Provide the requested information and click on “Create Account” at the bottom of the screen. Once this is completed, you will be logged into the system.

We updated our applicant system in 2017, login information created before then is no longer active. You will need to create a new account to apply for a position. If your account was created after 2017, you need to reset your password.

When you apply for another position, the application will pre-populate, and you will be able to add, edit or leave the information the same. For each new position you apply to, you will need to certify and submit the application.

The new system will not allow an applicant to complete an application before applying for a position. Once you apply for a position, you will be able to complete the application.
