Add document files (pdf, .doc, etc):

Scroll down to the "Documents" section and click "Add File"


You can drag & drop or browse to upload document files


Give the document title, and identify the type (cover letter, C.V., etc)


If the file satisfies a requirement, indicate which requirement it satisfies


Click "Add" to upload the document


Add video files:

You can also upload links to Vimeo or Youtube videos and use those to satisfy document requirements of the application.

 

Select the "Video" tab, give the video a title, add the url of a Youtube or Vimeo video, and add a description


If the video satisfies a requirement, indicate which requirement it satisfies


The video will be added to the application materials


Evaluators can view the video in the materials reader


Add Webpages:

Select the "Webpage" tab, give the webpage a title, add the url and a description of the page


If the webpage satisfies a requirement, indicate which requirement it satisfies


A link to the page will be added to the application materials, and will display to evaluators when they open the materials reader


The link will display in the materials reader


Note: Clicking the link will open the webpage in a new browser tab.

 

 

Mark the application as complete


Click the "Actions", and select "Mark Application Complete."

 

Administrators and Committee Managers CANNOT fill out forms (EEO or Custom) on behalf of applicants.

Applicants must be notified to complete any form responses, and to do so the application must allow for updates. For more information on how to accomplish this, reference our resources on Messaging Applicants and Creating a Position Status.
