Occasionally, however, your cache can prevent you from seeing updated content, or cause functional problems when stored content conflicts with live content. You can fix many browser problems simply by clearing your cache.

What Should I Do if I Would Like to Transfer My Account from Another District?

In order to transfer your account from another school district, after you have already created an account, you will need to log in to your account and alter your email address (For example, you can edit it by adding a “1” after the email address.) You will then be able to follow these steps to transfer your account:

 

To transfer your account, sign out of the site (if applicable) and begin applying for the position you would like.

 

You will be prompted to create a new account, sign in, or transfer a currently existing account.

 

Enter the email and password that relates to your other Recruit & Hire account.

 

Enter the state that the account is in and press continue.

How Do I Apply to Jobs as an Internal Applicant?

To apply to jobs as an internal applicant, you must currently be employed by the district to which you are applying. There are two ways to create an internal account.

 

  1. Some districts have an Internal link at the top right of the page. Clicking this link will take you through the process of creating an internal account.
  2. If you have already created an account and would like to change it to internal, log in and click Account Settings at the top of the page. On the right-hand side of the page you should see the Account Type section. Select I am a current employee to change your external account to internal.

How Do I Transfer my Recruit & Hire Account From One District to Another?

You cannot transfer your account if you have already created an account in the destination district. If you have, you will need to change the email address in the new account to an email other than the email used in the original district. (For instance, you can add an * or $ in front of the email address.)

If you have not created an account in the destination district, begin applying for the position you would like by clicking Apply and then Apply for this position.

 

  1. You will be prompted to create a new account, sign in, or transfer a currently existing account.
  2. Enter the email and password that relate to your other Recruit & Hire account in the I want to transfer my account section.
  3. Enter the state in which the account is located and click Continue.

The site will locate your other account. You can then select the account to transfer the information. Please be aware that only some of your profile information may be transferred. You will still need to fill out certain sections on new applications.

 

How do I reset my password in Recruit & Hire?

In the Menu section, click I forgot my Username or Password, then enter the email address associated with your candidate account. For security purposes, if you enter an alternate email, the system will NOT send the password reset email. You will receive an email with your username and a link to reset your password.

 

If you attempt to reset your password several times, only the reset password link in the LATEST email you received will work.

How Do I Apply for a Job?

Once you find a job that you would like to apply for, simply click on the title of the job (for example, “Maintenance Technician”) or click Apply. You will be taken to a page where you can review a description of the position and apply to it by clicking Apply for This Position at the top right.

The next page will present three options. The first will prompt you to create a new account if you are a new applicant to this district/organization. The second allows you to login if you have an existing account for this district/organization. The third gives you the option to transfer some information from your account with another district/organization that uses TalentEd.

 

Once you have submitted your information in one of the these three boxes, you will be taken to the actual application. On the right-hand side of the screen, you can see your progress as you move through the application. You must complete all required fields and click Save and Continue on each page to progress through the application. Please note that while you can leave the application at any time, you must click Save and Continue in order for the system to save your information on that page.

 

Note that a period of inactivity will cause the system to log you out, so do not step away from your application without clicking Save and Continue, or else information you entered after saving could be lost.

 

Once you have completed all pages and have reviewed your information, click Save and Submit. Once your application is successfully submitted, you will receive a confirmation number. You can use this confirmation number to reference your specific application. You will also be able to see the status of all applications you have submitted by clicking the Application Status tab in your account.

Once your application has been submitted, you will only be able to update your profile information, so please review your application carefully before submitting.
