The system says I can attach documents up to 5 MB in size. What does this mean and how does it relate to my 5140 KB document?

1024 KiloBytes (or KB) is equal to 1 MegaByte (or MB). This means that 5120 KB equals 5 MB, our limit. If you're finding that your documents are too big to upload, here are some things you can try to reduce the size:

  1. Are you using any graphics? Pictures and logos are notorious for eating up space in documents, so reducing their size or eliminating them altogether is an easy way to decrease your overall document size. If you are scanning in a transcript, you should also have the option to reduce your pixel-size, which can help make the file smaller.
  2. Putting files into an Adobe PDF file is another great way to reduce your document size. If you already have a version of Adobe on your computer, you can print the document to PDF (selecting PDF Printer in your Print Properties box), which is how you convert a Word doc to a PDF doc. You will be asked where to save it once it's been converted.
  3. If it's a particularly long document, you can also remove some extra bytes by stripping down fancy formatting features and/or page breaks.

I have already applied for a position, but attached the wrong resume or transcript, can I attach another document after I applied?

No. Once you have finished applying for a position and have received a confirmation number, you will not be able to upload/attach more documents.

 

Do I need to create a new application for every position I want to apply for?

No. Simply find the position you’re interested in, and edit your application information, if needed (login and click on the “Manage Applications” link on the navigation bar). After editing, click on the APPLY FOR THIS POSTING button on the Job Details page.
