The required documentation may vary by position. If letters of reference are required, to submit your reference names enter the "Manage References" section of the Recruitment Application.  For each reference it will be necessary to provide contact information including an E-mail address. It is YOUR responsibility to contact each of the references and tell them how to submit a reference for you. The process is described on the page where the references are entered. Once a reference has submitted a letter for you, a check mark will appear next to his/her name so that you know the letter has been submitted, but you will NOT be able to review the submitted document.
