Submitting your resume(s) online for the Resume Referral Service enables registered employers to view your resume(s) from the CDC website. Employers search for resumes by criteria you indicate in your profile, e.g. major, job/internship target. Additional resumes can be uploaded for applying to specific job postings.
Step 1. Log in to ORCA
Step 2. Complete Your Profile & Privacy Statement
Step 3. Submit your Resume(s) Online
Step 4. To Delete a Resume
You may delete a resume at any time. Under the heading "Options" simply click on the delete button. If you delete a default resume be sure to make another one your default.
Your default resume will remain active for up to one year following your last ORCA login unless otherwise deleted by you. If you do not use ORCA for one year your default resume will automatically become hidden from employer view. To make your resume viewable after one year simply login. Remember though, your presenting an old resume and it will be important for you to update your resume and profile.
Step 5. Making Changes to or Updating Your Resume
Although it may appear as though you can, it is not possible to make changes to your resume directly on ORCA. Once having updated your resume, replace the resume in ORCA by uploading your new document. To do so, delete the resume you wish to replace in ORCA (follow instructions in Step 4) and replace it with the new version (follow instructions in Step 3).
REMEMBER: Your default resume will remain active for up to one year following your last ORCA login!
