APPLICATION SUBMISSION AND STATUS

Information on creating your applicant profile is available online at http://www.governmentjobs.com/AgencyInstructions.cfm

Use a “master” application when applying for more than one position. Once you have established your user account, you may click on the “Populate” button to automatically populate a new application with the information from your previous (“master”) application. You may then review and update your application materials and required attachments as necessary prior to submission (if additional documents are required for another position you are applying for, you will need to either submit, or re-submit those documents if allowed).

Once your application has been submitted (Certify and Submit icon), the information is saved. If you make a change to your application after submittal, these changes are not visible to Human Resources staff. The changes are only visible to you. However, a job posting may allow you to resubmit a new complete application packet with your changes and appropriate attachments if done PRIOR TO the final filing deadline.

Save your application as you create it. Each time you complete a section of the application form, click the “Save and View Application” button at the bottom of the form. If you need to exit out of the application form before it is complete, click the “Save and View Application” button. The system will save the information you have input.

Check your application before submitting. Review that the information on your application is correct. Review that all the required documents have been “attached” or inserted as “Text” if that is an option (Please note that once your attachment has been successfully uploaded (“attached”) to your application, a link with the name of your file will be visible to you. If you do not see a link with your file name, prior to submitting your application packet, please contact NEOGOV’s technical support at 1-877-204-4442 for assistance in uploading the electronic version of your required attachment(s). Then click the “Certify and Submit” button thereby completing submission of your application.

Confirming your application was received will occur by an automatically generated e-mail confirmation. It will be sent after submitting your application. This will be the notification your application was received; however the auto response does not confirm required attachments.

In many cases email notices will be sent to candidates throughout the recruitment process. Be sure your email account allows for these communications to be received in your “Inbox” and not your “Junk Mail”.
