Resumes/Employment History

When applying in Job Gateway, you may choose to apply with a resume or without a resume.  Some job postings may state that a resume is required to apply.  Both in your resume and when you add employment history information in your application, you should provide a detailed description of your work experience.  The information you provide will be compared to your application question answers and then carefully evaluated to determine your qualifications.
