Applicants can only upload a single document in response to an upload question. If an applicant has more than one file they need to upload, they need to combine the files either electronically or via scanning. There are two methods:
1. If the files to be uploaded are in a format that is editable (such as Word or Excel), the applicant may take multiple Word documents or Excel sheets and combine them into one file.
2. If the files are not easily edited (PDF or physical copies), they may be combined by utilizing the Fax-to-File tool. For example, sending two resumes in a fax would result in one PDF file containing both resumes.
To start, click the Fax to File link on the left hand side of the screen.
Then click the Request a Fax # button and you will be presented with a toll-free fax number. You have this number for 20 minutes.
Fax your document to the number provided. Send a separate fax for each document and do not include a cover sheet. All faxed documents will be automatically converted to a PDF. You have 20 minutes to fax your documents before the number expires.
After you have faxed each separate document click the Finished Faxing button to see your list of files.
Download your converted documents to your computer and save them.
Upload the documents to the appropriate questions on the online form.
