ONLINE APPLICATION QUESTIONS

What is the best format to use for my résumé?
The best format for your résumé is Plain Text. Before you copy and paste your résumé, save it as Plain Text in your word processing document. Rich Text formats do not translate well once you submit your application.

If you wish to maintain certain formats, you may use HTML tags, however; please note that your résumé is being evaluated on content, not format. You can preview how your résumé will appear to the Canada Revenue Agency recruiter or recruiting team by logging on to My Résumés and clicking the Preview icon to the right of the résumé name.

How do I know my application has been received?
You will receive an e-mail acknowledging that Canada Revenue Agency has received your résumé. We will also notify you if our recruiting team determines your skills and background match our current hiring needs.

We ask all job applicants and staff to participate. The information you provide is strictly confidential and kept separate from all other employee records. Access to this information is limited and is only used for statistical purposes.

I have submitted my application, but now realize I made an error in the information I provided. What should I do?
You can't re-apply for the position, but you can update the information in any résumé you submitted by clicking the name of the résumé you wish to modify. Once you save the changes, the résumé you submitted will be updated.

PROCESS QUESTIONS

Can I apply for more than one position at a time?
You are encouraged to apply for any and all positions you are interested in. In addition, you may wish to save your resumé and mark it Public in the My Resumés section. By doing so, the entire Canada Revenue Agency recruiting community can search and find your resumé.

What happens to my résumé once I have applied?
If you are applying for a specific position, your résumé will be directed automatically to the Canada Revenue Agency recruiter responsible for filling that position. After evaluating your skills and background, the recruiter may contact you for further information or an interview. Your résumé will be maintained in the Canada Revenue Agency database and will be available only to our recruiting team.

I have received an email message from a Canada Revenue Agency recruiter as a result of an application I recently submitted. What is the best way to respond?
The best way to respond is to reply to the message you received; this ensures that your reply is automatically directed to the Canada Revenue Agency recruiter who sent the message.
