Upload Attachments - Upload Page

On the Upload page, applicants can upload or write a resume and cover letter for an application. Applicants can also upload up to 10 additional attachments to associate with the application.

The Upload page is divided into the following three sections:

  • Resume/CV
  • Cover Letter
  • Other Documents

Resume/CV

For external applicants, the options available in the Resume/CV section are dependent upon whether the applicant is a first-time applicant or an applicant that has previously submitted a resume for a job. For internal applicants, the options differ depending on whether or not the applicant has completed a resume in Career Center or Universal Profile.

Note: Only one resume can be stored within the system for a user. If a second resume is uploaded, the previous resume is lost and the new resume is used for all applications.
