Oh great - now I checked my job applications submitted list, and it shows me having submitted an application for that job FIVE TIMES! (I kept going back and trying to submit it, because it kept giving me an error) Is there a way to get four of those removed? That's not exactly the kind of first impression I want to make.

Thank you,

Hi @DrMikeBriggs 


Thank you for reaching out to the PowerSchool Community!


I am sorry to hear that you were having an issue submitting an application. 


The error that you received can be due to various issues that are likely server side related. When you receive this error you might try refreshing the page, come back later, or delete your browser's cookies.


It appears that although you were receiving the error, you application was being submitted. 


I understand your asking to have four of the applications removed. Please reach out to the district's HR department to explain your issue and request to them. They can make any changes possible in their system or add notes to your applications.

This site sucks.

What the ^..^ is Code 500?

I'm so disappointed in this new site.

I lost my previous applications, no tracking of current applications, and nothing transferred over. Not to mention, there was no prior warning either.
