I am unable to add an attachment to my application template. How do I attach a document?

To attach a document successfully, first close the file that you are trying to attach, and then check the following:

  • Attachment Type - Some agencies require specific attachment types to be included in the application. Check that your document is listed as the attachment type that the organization is requiring. For example, if the error message reads The following attachment types are missing: Résumé, check that your corresponding document's attachment type is listed as Résumé and not Other, Cover Letter, or any other attachment type.
  • File type - Some agencies only accept certain file types. If you receive an error regarding the file type, check that you are attaching a file with a valid (acceptable) file extension.
  • File size - Attachments that are larger than ten megabytes are not accepted. If your file is larger than five megabytes, you should reduce the file size. If you are still unable to attach the file after following these steps, try deleting the cookies from your web browser or attempt to attach the file from a different web browser.
