      • Pages are not opening correctly, I can’t see anything on the page; I just get a blank screen.
        • The cause of this may be your browser/security settings.  Please try a different browser or if you are comfortable with adjusting settings on your browser, adjust the settings until the page is visible. 
      • My upload did not work, or the browser timed out.
        • This could be due to the file type or settings on the document you are trying to upload.  We accept the following document types: .doc, .docx, .rtf, .rtx, .PDF, .txt, .xls, .xlsx, .tiff, .tif, .jpeg, .jpg, .jpe, .png, .flv, .mov.  Please make sure the document does not have a watermark or password protected content.   
  • What happens after I submit an application?
      • I submitted an application a long time ago and haven’t heard back.
        • Our HR team reviews all submissions and will contact candidates whom the search committee wishes to speak with further. Once a search is fully completed, we notify all applicants at that time.
      • If a job was posted a few months ago and remains on the website, is it really still open?
        • Yes, if a job is listed on the website it is still open. Some jobs take longer to fill than others. For most positions we continue to accept application until the position is filled, although we might be in different stages of the interview process.
