Creating your on-line staff application

In order to start your application process, you will need to create an account by visiting the RA Application Process website. You will be directed to a staff application site, and your first time accessing this site will require you to create an account. Click on the green "create account" button to log-in. You will log-in with your Blackboard (My.Unl) username and password.


Once you create your account, make sure to click on and review the information and instructions contained on every tab at the top of your profile to thoroughly understand what you must complete.  The tabs are: overview, questions, supporting docs and submit.  You can access your account up until the deadline to make any edits or updates needed.

Submitting the on-line application

Successfully submitting the on-line application consists of completing the following actions within your account:

  • Fill out your profile and demographics information
  • Answer all applicable job application questions (questions tab)
  • Attach a resume, providing a link to a resume, or typing your resume directly into your account profile (supporting docs tab)
  • Answer essay questions
  • Click "submit" (submit tab)

You will receive an email to confirm when your application has been submitted.  Also, on the overview tab of your profile a message stating the date and time that your application was submitted will also be displayed, along with a green circle around a black check mark icon captioned "submitted".  Until this occurs, your profile message will state "incomplete," and this means action is still needed on your part.  Review each tab again to ensure you have completed all action steps and have submitted your application.
