The RTAA Employment Application is the primary screening tool to determine an applicant's qualifications. A resume may be submitted in addition to, but not in lieu of, completing the RTAA Employment Application. While you may submit a resume, it is supplemental and will not be used to determine whether or not you have met the minimum qualifications. All work experience, education, training and other information substantiating how you meet the minimum qualifications must be included on your RTAA Employment Application.
We strongly encourage applicants to review our online application instructions (available at the top of the RTAA Career webpage) before submitting the application to help ensure it has been completed in a manner consistent with our requirements. Below is a summary of our requirements:

Provided detailed information to address how you meet and/or exceed minimum qualifications for the position,
Provided a minimum of five (5) years of employment history,
Explained any gaps in employment of six (6) months or more within the "Work History" section. To explain gaps, add a new employer, write what was occurring under the "Name of Employer" (e.g., unemployed, student, etc.), and list dates. Please note, a statement in the "Reason for Leaving Section" is not sufficient to address gaps in employment.
If you had more than one (1) position with the same employer, list each position, and the time you were in that position, separately.
Questions about the application, recruitment, and/or selection process, the physical demands of the position, or requests for a reasonable accommodation, should be addressed to the RTAA Human Resources Office at (775) 328-6450 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
