See Section 5, page 24, of the Talent Applicant Guide - Current UArizona Employees, or Section 5, page 33, of the Talent Applicant Guide - Future UArizona Employees for more details.
The only document you will be able to view after you have submitted your application materials is your resume/CV. All other documents submitted as part of an application, although not visible to you, are viewable by the hiring team.
To confirm that your additional documents were attached to your application, you may contact our Recruitment and Outreach team at 520-621-7704 or email@example.com.

All positions are open until filled unless otherwise indicated. You may apply at any time for all open positions. All UArizona positions are open for a minimum of seven calendar days and never close on a weekend or UArizona designated holiday. For further details regarding a specific posting’s review schedule, please contact the individual listed within the job posting’s "Contact Information for Candidates" field.
All positions posted on our Talent applicant portal are open and accepting applications.
All postings include a department contact name, email address and/or phone number. This contact information is listed within each individual job posting's Contact Information for Candidates field. The listed contact typically works in the hiring department and can answer questions about the position.
If a position no longer appears in your job search, it has been closed, cancelled, or filled by the department. For further details regarding a specific posting's status, please contact the individual listed within the job posting's "Contact Information for Candidates" field. You may contact our Recruitment and Outreach team at 520-621-7704 or firstname.lastname@example.org for support accessing this information.
If a posting is cancelled, it means the department has elected to not make a hire. The department may choose to post the position again at a later date. If so, you may apply again at that time.
The most common reasons why the system will not allow a document to upload are:
- if the file name exceeds 50 characters. You must shorten the file name of your document to less than 50 characters to successfully upload.
- if the file size exceeds 10 megabytes. You will need to divide your materials into two files, each smaller than 10 megabytes in size.
If you are still experiencing an issue uploading your document after trying these solutions, please contact our Recruitment and Outreach team at 520-621-7704 or email@example.com.
Your phone number is listed as “NA” to avoid having your personal phone number shown as your office number in other areas of Talent. Please ensure that your phone number is included in your application materials (such as your resume, cover letter, etc.).
The hiring departments will typically request references in the later stages of the recruitment process. If you are still being considered for the position at that later stage, the hiring department will reach out to you via email and/or phone to request reference information.
If you already submitted your reference information, but would like to submit more, please contact our Recruitment and Outreach team at 520-621-7704 or firstname.lastname@example.org for support. We will work with the hiring department to determine the best method for gathering the remainder of your reference entries.
Checking this option allows hiring departments to do a keyword search of your application for the purpose of matching it with other positions you may be qualified for. If they find a match for experience or qualifications, they may invite you to apply for other positions.
Once you select this checkbox to make your data searchable, you will not be able to unselect this feature for this application and future applications.
If you have a profile and apply under the same profile, your field entries and resume/CV will automatically populate into the required fields of future applications. You may have to upload additional documents as required by the hiring department, depending on the position.
If you apply as a guest user, your application materials will not carry over into your next application.
While there is no requirement for how to address your cover letter, one recommendation is as follows:
Contact (listed in announcement)
Division (listed in announcement)
University of Arizona
Dear [insert contact name] and search committee,
This format allows you to acknowledge specific information from the announcement you are applying to while presenting in a professional manner.
For compliance purposes, the system does not allow you to edit the original documents submitted with an application. If you are invited to interview, you may offer your updated documents at that time.
Withdrawing your application will not allow you to replace documents within your application. If you have any questions about replacing your documents, please contact our Recruitment and Outreach team at 520-621-7704 or email@example.com.
Please note: Creating a new profile and submitting another application for a position you have already applied for is not a recommended method for replacing documents.
When you view your previous applications via the "View Application" link, the system displays the most recently typed resume information. However, if you click on the "View Resume (PDF)" link, the system will download the resume document uploaded at the time of application. This behavior aligns with the vendor's system design specifications. If you didn't attach a resume for that application, the system will display the most recent resume document it has on file prior to the date of that application.
