IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR YAHOO, AOL, AND VERIZON EMAIL USERS: If you are using Yahoo email or one of its affiliates, such as AOL or Verizon, it is highly recommended that you change your email address before applying for a position because Yahoo email Servers are routinely rejecting emails from online applicant systems. Online applicant systems, like ours, send automatic emails to confirm receipt of your application, and we send out status updates. We also reach out to candidates by email through our applicant system. Since email is the preferred way to contact applicants, we wanted you to be aware of the issues Yahoo is having with most online applicant systems. If you are never getting feedback from online applications, it could be because of the Yahoo server issues. If you are using Yahoo or one of the above affiliated email accounts, our emails to you will most likely bounce back to us as undeliverable. Due to the large volume of candidates that we receive, we cannot follow-up on bounced emails. Thank you.
