You can save your search criteria as a saved search or as a job agent. A saved search allows you to view the list of jobs that match your criteria at any time. When you save search criteria as a job agent, the system checks for job openings that meet the saved search criteria nightly and emails you with new jobs that match your search criteria.

We recommend you upload your resume instead of using the cut-and-paste options. Uploading your resume will automatically populate your job application. Make sure your resume is Microsoft Word (.doc) or PDF format (.pdf).
You won't be able to update your resume on the website. If you want to change a resume you've already submitted, please contact HR directly.
You are not required to submit a cover letter but you may do so if you choose.
You can include a cover letter as the first page of your uploaded resume, or go to "My Career Tools" on the homepage of the job search section and upload the cover letter using the "Cover Letters and Attachments" link.
It's a good idea to include the job ID number in the cover letter filename.
To search, enter the keywords for the type of job you're looking for into the job application text box and click "Search." You can also click "Advanced Search" to choose more search options.
You can save your search criteria as a job agent. In this case, the system will check for job openings that meet your saved search criteria nightly and email you new jobs that match your search criteria.
You will only be notified about each job once. Job agent emails are sent out for 60 days. After that time, you will need to re-save job agents to be notified of future positions.
If you have created an account, you can examine the status of open positions. Once you've logged in, click on "My Career Tools" to view the status of all open positions you've applied for, review resumes previously submitted, and upload supporting documents (references, cover letters, etc).
