Application
Q:Can I save my incomplete application and return to complete it at a later time?A:Yes. You may logout of your application at any time and return later.

Attachment
Q:What types of files do you accept for resumes, transcripts, test scores, etc?A:All files attached to your application must be in .txt, .rtf, .pdf, .docx, or .doc format. If you need to upload an image or scan, you must convert it to .pdf or place it into a Word .doc file.Back to TopQ:Can I upload more attachments?A:You are currently limited to a maximum of six (6) upload documents. These will carry over to other applications if you apply for more than one job.

If you have additional attachments to include, try combining similar documents into one attachment. If you are unable to do so, additional attachments can be sent to Human Resources at recruitment@aacps.org.
Back to TopQ:Can I upload a separate group of attachments for each job posting to which I apply?A:At this time there is no way to upload different attachments for different job postings. If you overwrite your current attachments with new ones then the old versions will no longer be viewable.

This is most commonly a concern with the resume. We recommend using a general resume for all positions and entering job specific details in the cover letter field of the application.
Back to TopQ:Can I upload different cover letters for each job posting to which I apply?A:There is currently no way to upload different cover letters for each job to which you apply. Due to this issue, we have added a cover letter field during the application. This is a text field where you are able to paste or type in your cover letter and can be edited to be specific to each application.Back to Top
