It is important that your application show all the relevant education and experience you possess. Specifically, we require the last ten years of your work history to be included in your application. Attaching a resume does not meet this requirement. Applications that do not list related work experience in the "Employment History/Work Experience" section will be considered incomplete and will be rejected.

The best way to complete your application in a timely manner is to have information prepared in advance and readily available to allow for a smoother submission process. You can also make sure you do not lose your information by saving often. Also, it is recommended that applicants do not wait until the last minute to submit an online application. The system will not accept an application that has been started, and not completed and submitted prior to the closing time.
