I can get to the internet, but I don’t have an e-mail address. Do I need one?

The application requires that all candidates register a user id, password and an e-mail address. Having an e-mail address also allows Human Resources to send you communication related to your submitted application for an open posting via the internet. If you do not have an email address, you may get one through various organizations who provide e-mail accounts. You may visit,,, or your Internet Services Provider, for more information.
