The Candidate Account will allow you to view submitted applications and their status, as well as views to similar jobs. In addition, some data you already entered (contact, work experience, education, skills) will prepopulate when you apply to other jobs (as long as you are signed into your account prior to applying).
What do I do if I need to add or change my application after it has been submitted?
Please direct your questions or changes to the “Contact Name” listed in the job posting.
Can I update my experience and provide different attachments for different position(s)?
Yes, each application you supply is unique to the position.
Do I need to fill in my experience AND attach my resume? It seems redundant?
It is your choice, however, it is recommended that you supply both. The job posting should also indicate if attaching a resume and/or cover letter would be required. If data is missing, Recruiters, Search Committee Members, Hiring Managers, and Interviewers may scan over or miss your application during the screening process.
What can I do if I forgot my password?
Go to the Cornell Careers portal and click the blue "Sign In" button; select the "Forgot Password" option on bottom right of pop-up. You'll need to use the same email that you used to create your account.
Who can I contact if I am having problems or have questions about my online application?
Please call the HR Services & Transitions Center, 607-255-3936, TTY 711 or firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I withdraw my application if needed?
If you would like to withdraw your job application, you may do so from the Candidate home page, using the Withdraw button. If you are later in the job application process, and the Withdraw button no longer displays, please work directly with your recruiter or contact email@example.com.
How can accommodation be requested to assist with the application process?
If you require an accommodation for a disability so that you may participate in the application or selection process, you are encouraged to contact Cornell University's Office of Workforce Policy and Labor Relations at voice (607) 254-7232, fax (607) 255-0298, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For internet access please visit your local library, Department of Labor or contact the Recruitment and Employment Office for assistance.
