Once you have found a job you are interested in, follow these steps to submit your application:
- Read through the entire job posting carefully, paying close attention to the Application Procedure and Application Documents requested in the Application Information section.
- If the Application procedure is listed as “Through myCareer” click on either the black APPLY button at the top of the job posting screen, OR click on the blue circle icon in the bottom right-side of the screen and select APPLY.
- You now have two options:
A. apply with an existing application package that has already been created in myCareer OR
B. create a new customized application package by uploading the required documents, naming the application package, and selecting the documents to include in this package. Please see the tutorial How to Create an Application Package for more details on how to do this.
To keep track of your various applications, we recommend naming any new packages you create with the specific job ID number and title of the posting.
Once you apply you will be taken to a screen that indicates your online application has been submitted. Please be aware that employers can view the time and date that applications have been submitted, and no applications will be accepted after the position’s application deadline, as stated in the posting. However, you do also have the option of cancelling your application once it has been submitted (and re-applying with another if desired), as long as this action is taken before the application deadline.
- You can view your co-op or internship application history by clicking on Management Career Services in the main menu and clicking on the Work Term Application Record icon, or by clicking on the Applications option under the Management Career Services menu.
Occasionally, when you’re applying for Co-op and Internship jobs through myCareer, the job description specifies that you must apply for the job directly on the employer’s website as well as upload an application on the myCareer System.
Why do you have to do both?
This application procedure must be followed because employers often use the myCareer system to set up interview slots and contact chosen students. If Management Career Services has no record of your application, then when an employer sets up interviews in the myCareer system they would be unable to request an interview with you. Therefore, be sure to apply as directed to avoid the loss of an interview.
