Upon completion of the online application process, applicants receive a confirmation e-mail. At this point, the application is submitted to the job(s) of your choice. Applications are screened for the most qualified candidates to proceed to the next step in the process. With regret, due to the large volume of applications, we are unable to personally respond to all applicants. All candidates will receive an e-mail when their status changes.
If a Skills Assessment is required by the position, you may receive a second email notification reminding you to finish the assessment along with your first confirmation e-mail.
Note: The application system will automatically take you to the assessment page upon completion of the application. If you complete the assessment at that time, you may ignore the reminder email message.
