Applicants applying to jobs on responsive (mobile-friendly) career sites will experience some differences in the application process for mobile-friendly applications. The application may appear on a single page, which provides a simplified application process.
In addition, applicants can add attachments to their application, if enabled by the administrator.
Applicants can also save their application progress. This lets them start the application, save their progress, and return to the application at a later time and/or from a different device.

- File Name Length - The maximum file name length is 50 characters.
