Application
Q:Can I save my incomplete application and return to complete it at a later time?A:Yes. You may logout of your application at any time and return later. When you are ready to complete your application, enter your username and password and you will be allowed to continue your application if the job posting is still open.Back to TopQ:How do I apply for a job?A:You may create a profile and an account when you see a job in which you are interested. You click the "apply" button and you are directed to create the profile and set up your application.
You only have to create one profile and application and then you can attach it to multiple positions either at the time you initially set up the account or at a later date. You will want to sign up for "job alerts" which sends you an email when a new job has been posted.

DO NOT SEND OR EMAIL US YOUR RESUME. A RESUME SHOULD ONLY BE ATTACHED TO YOUR APPLICATION THROUGH SCHOOL RECRUITER.

When your application is successfully submitted, you will receive a Confirmation Number. You can use this confirmation number to reference a specific application.

Is the district still accepting applications for substitutes?A:Substitute applications are taken during the year based on our needs. Usually we hire substitutes prior to the beginning of the school year and again after the Winter Break. Sign up for the automated job posting e-mail notifications so you don't miss out on applying.

Is there any way to overwrite this?A:When you submit an application, the system locks your answers in permanently. HR departments are aware of this and know to check candidate profiles for updated information.Back to TopQ:What happens if I withdraw my application?A:If you withdraw your application the district will no longer consider you for the position from which you are withdrawing. If you withdraw by mistake, please contact the district and they can re-activate your application.Back to TopQ:My application status says "Incomplete". What should I do?A:If your application status reads "Incomplete," you will need to contact the district to ask why they have marked it this way.

If you have already created an account and would like to change it to internal, select the "Account Settings" option at the top of the screen after you have logged in. On the right side of the page there is an "Account Type" section. Here you can change your external account to internal by selecting "I am a current employee."Back to Top
