You may either select a resume that you have previously used from the list, upload a new resume, or choose to create a new resume. The resume you select will be linked to the jobs for which you are applying during this session. If you choose to create a new resume, click on the Copy and Paste Resume Text option. Submitting a resume is required to apply for a position.
Tips for Uploading Your Resume
- When you select the Upload a Resume option and click Continue, you will navigate to a page where you can upload your resume. On this page, click the Browse button to search for your resume on your computer. This will open a Choose Resume dialog box where you can find your resume file. Click on that file and click Open. This will retrieve the full address of the file you wish to upload. Click on the Upload button to then attach your resume to your application and continue.
- If you wish to also provide a cover letter, please include that in the same document as your resume.
- Only resumes with the following file extensions can be uploaded: .doc or .docx (Microsoft Word) or .txt (Notepad or a Text Editor).
- Files must be less than 500KB in size.
- You must still complete the entire process in order to submit your application and resume.
Please note: If you choose to upload a new resume, it will overwrite all application information previously saved.
Tips for Cutting and Pasting Your Resume
- When copying and pasting a resume, we require a minimum of 250 characters per resume.
- This space may also be used to provide a cover letter in addition to a resume.
- Use asterisk (*) instead of bullets to set off a list.
- In place of bold text, use capital letters to designate category headings.
- If you already have an electronic copy of your resume, you may either click Return to Previous Page and select the Upload a New Resume option or you can copy the text and paste it into the box provided. If you choose to copy and paste a resume that was created using word processing software, such as Microsoft Word, first save your resume as a text-only file. Web-based forms, such as the resume entry form, aren't able to interpret many of the formatting commands and special characters commonly used in word processing programs. These include the use of bold text, tabs, and bullets. Saving your resume as a text-only file, strips the document of this type of formatting.
Please note: If you choose to Cut and Paste a resume, the information included will NOT default into the application section. You will still be responsible for completeing this portion of the application.
