There are four sections to the application process, please follow these instructions carefully:
- Contact information – Be sure to fill out all of the required fields (marked with a *).
- Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Questions (EEO) – We are required to ask these questions, using this wording, to meet federal guidelines. These questions are optional and declining to answer the questions will NOT affect your application. Most of these questions have a specific “Decline to answer” type choice, but the Gender question does not. If you prefer not to answer the Gender question you can skip it. NOTE: If you apply to multiple positions at Wilder, you may not see these questions for applications after the first one because your browser will automatically answer them from its cache. If you want to change any of your answers for this section from one application to another, please clear your browser cache before starting a new application or use a different browser.
- Resume and cover letter section – Applications for this position require both a resume and cover letter. However, the system allows you to only attach one document. You will need to create and upload a single document containing both your resume and cover letter. Otherwise you can attach one of your documents and paste the text from the other document into the text box or you can paste the text from both documents into the text box. Be aware that information pasted into the text box will lose its formatting. There is no need to include the same information in both the text box and an attached document.
- Final Review – You will be given an opportunity to review the information you are about to submit. If you need to correct something, use the Back buttons in the application, not the ones for your browser. If you attach a new document, it will overwrite any existing document. You will receive a confirmation email after submitting your application.
Jobs offers will be contingent on the successful applicant‘s proof of authorization to work in the United States and the results of a background check related to the job requirements.
