Common Questions

How do I apply for a job? I go to the Jobs page and can only see jobs and details of jobs.

You must first register as a new user of the site. You can then search for jobs and apply.

If you do not see any jobs to apply for, do not assume the school districts are not interested in your skill set. You can still fill out an application - selecting up to three position titles that you want to be considered for. The school districts you send your application to will match it up against new jobs or jobs they have not put on this site.

How long will this take?

Filling out an application takes approximately 45 minutes - depending on the type of application you are building and how extensive your work experience is.

Will I be logged out of the system if I am inactive for a period of time?

On pages that you can edit, you will be logged out after 30 minutes. A warning message and count down timer will appear if you have not saved your work. On uneditable pages, no warning message will appear, but you will be logged off after 45 minutes of inactivity.

Why is my Social Security Number required? What happens to it?

We collect your social security number because the North Carolina public school systems require it to consider you as a candidate for any job openings. It also allows us to include Licensure information on your applications. Once collected, we never show it to anyone on this web site. Only Human Resources personnel working for the public school systems you submit an application to can see it.

How do I enter my information?

You enter each section of your application on a separate screen. There is a link on the left side of the screen for each section you should complete. You may submit your application only after all required screens have been completed.

The Finishing Up section is where you agree to the Terms and Conditions statement and submit the application to your selected school systems. If this step is not completed, the application is never sent to anyone and is kept in Draft status.

Why can't I just paste in my resume?

This system ensures that you provide the school systems all the information they need to find your application and evaluate you as a candidate. School Systems routinely use this system to perform targeted searches of available candidates. The easier it is for employers to find you, the faster and easier it will be for you to find the right opportunity!

What will my application look like?

Click the "View Application" link to see what the school districts will see. This is also a good way to print your application.

How will employers find my application?

At the end of this process you will have the opportunity to print a hard copy of your application. In order to ensure that the school system you are interested in receives a copy, you may choose to print it and mail a copy directly to the school system. To allow employers to access your application, you must submit it. You may submit your application on the "Final Step" portion of the application builder.

What if I need to stop before I'm finished?

At any time, you may exit the application builder and come back at a later time to finish it. All the information you saved up to that point will still be there.

What if I am not from the United States?

Enter all 0s for Zip Code.

Enter all 0s for Telphone Number.

If you do not have a Social Security Number (SSN), enter a “Dummy SSN”. Create a number beginning with 000-XX-XXXX. Be sure to note the number that you use as you will not be able to see it in the system and may need it later. You will need to notify the HR office, if hired, what your correct SSN is and what the “Dummy SSN” was that you used.

Why can't I remove School Districts or delete other information from my application after I submit it?

When you submit your application, it is sent to each selected School District. At that point, those School Districts 'own' your application, and you cannot delete your application or sections of it from their records. You may, however, do the following:
