How do I upload documents to my application? (For example, a resume, cover letter, or supplemental questions)
Depending upon the job you are applying for, at some point in your application you will be given an opportunity to upload documents. Upload file buttons for different document types will appear (resume/CV, cover letter, etc.) By clicking the upload button, a pop-up window will appear and you can navigate to the document you wish to upload. Once a document is uploaded, the title will be displayed on the application page.
Please pay close attention to the “Special Instructions to Applicants” regarding the required documents. You may need to combine multiple documents into a single file to submit them via the online application.
Please note that you can upload, delete, and re-upload documents as you work on your application, but once you have submitted your application, you cannot edit these documents or upload additional ones. At that point, to make changes you would need to withdraw and resubmit your application. References are the only items that remain editable after submission.
