You may get an error message if your resume has a format that is not recognized by our system (Word, PDF, or plain text documents are acceptable). Please also ensure that your resume's file name is 20 characters or less; long files names may not upload correctly.
If you click on your resume attachment and nothing happens, it is probably because you have pop-up blockers enabled. To temporarily get around this problem on Windows, hold down the Ctrl key while you click on the resume attachment. Keep holding down the Ctrl key until a window pops up asking if you want to open the file. If that still does not work, you may need to allow pop-ups.
If you cannot find the School, Major, or License/Certificate that applies to you, you can type the correct name using the corresponding Other text boxes to the right of field.
You will receive this error if the information that you typed into a particular field does not match the acceptable values for that field. This will most commonly occur for a field that has a magnifying glass to the right of the text box, such as School and Major on the Post Secondary Education page. To resolve this error for School or Major, either click on the magnifying glass icon to find the appropriate value or type the correct name into the Other box to the right of the field.
