Q: How does “Quick Apply” work?
A: Quick apply is the ability to quickly upload your resume and our system will extract the details of your resume and input them into our application fields on your behalf (this is known as resume parsing). After using Quick Apply, you should review the job application fields to ensure the information is correct. If you do not wish to use Quick Apply, simply click “Next” and fill in the fields yourself. You will be able to attach your resume and other documents at another step in the application process.

Q: Will my application be visible on my LinkedIn profile?
A: No. When candidates apply to a Bruce Power job posting by linking their LinkedIn profile to the application, there is not badge or signifier that gets placed on the applicants LinkedIn profile that would be visible to any external viewer. LinkedIn keeps job applications off of a candidates profile for anonymity.

Q: What formats and what size of documents can I upload as an attachment?
A: You can upload DOC, DOCX, HTML, PDF, or TXT file types (5MB total max). Zip files cannot be processed.

Q: Does the system recognize special characters?
A: Yes. Workday has no problem recognizing special characters.

Q: Can I stop my application process and continue again at a later date?
A: No. Once you start the application process, you must continue through to submission or begin again. Your data will not be saved until submitted.

Q: What happens if I need to make changes to my application after it is submitted?
A: Once your online application and attachments are submitted, you will not be able to make changes. You will need to reapply to the vacancy (using a different e-mail address) if you have already submitted your application.
