Please read the following tips to help you make the best use of the system:

  • Password length is at least eight characters. A password must contain at least one upper case, one lower case and at least one number A password cannot be the same as the user ID.
  • Jobs are automatically sorted by date when you first visit, with the most recently posted jobs at the top of the list. You can click on the various headings to sort by job title, etc.

  • If you upload a Word document, and wish to view it online, you may need to hold your Ctrl key down before clicking on the link, depending on your web browser and security settings.
  • If you are interested in applying for more than one job on the current list, check the boxes to the left of the titles before hitting the “Apply” button. This step will save you time by combining questions into a single list.

Job postings will be removed on the deadline date. “Save as Draft” is not considered a complete application. Once application are submitted, changes cannot be made. Resumes
