Choosing Resume Receipt Method

The resume receipt field asks how the contact would like to receive applications containing resumes and possibly other documents. Checking the Email choice will display a "Default email for resumes" field; enter the email address where the contact would like to receive resumes here. Each time a student applies to a position the System Message: Non-OCR Resume Submitted will be sent with the application materials attached. If Accumulate Online is selected then student documents will reside online and contacts login to view/download them. Managers may also choose this option if employers won’t be logging in, as no resumes will be emailed, they will be collected electronically. If Other is selected, a text box will appear where specific instructions describing exactly how to apply should be included. If a link is required, be sure to use the correct HTML formatting.
