New Online Application System
It has been a few months now that the job board has been closed to develop and implement a new application system. It's almost time to start submitting those resumes and applying online again! The new online application system will launch July 1st, 2013. This system will be much more user friendly than the previous system and will allow our HR department to quickly and efficiently receive and manage application for open positions.
