“I’m having trouble applying for a job I found on AdjunctWorld.  Can you help me?”

We see this question a lot and the answer is – sort of!  Once you click off of the AdjunctWorld website, you have now entered into the school’s website.  From a direct tech support angle, Matt and I can’t really help since we are not webmasters on any school’s site, just our own.  However, I have a couple of suggestions for things to try when you find yourself in that particular pickle.

  1. Try from another browser.  A lot of school sites or application progams prefer one browser to another.  So, if you are trying to apply through Safari and you run into an error, try Chrome.  If you are trying through Chrome, try Firefox.  Etc.  The application process might work when you switch.  I think some folks experienced this particular issue when applying to the University of the People volunteer positions.
  2. Locate the school’s tech support contact information.  This is sometimes listed right on the job listing page, often in the footer.  But it may take some clicking around or Googling.  If you get in touch with them, they might be able to help.
  3. Go ahead and send me an email.  Even though we can’t be of direct help once you leave the AdjunctWorld site, Matt or I might be familiar with that school’s particular issue or may have some insight into what is going on.  I hope I can help, but I may have to refer you to tips #1 and #2.
  4. The position may no longer be available.  We have a nightly automated system that removes filled positions from our website, but it doesn’t always catch all of them.  We go through our list manually too.  But given the size of our database, some slip through the cracks.  If you attempt to click on a job and it appears to be filled you can click on the “Oops, a problem with this listing” link on the AW site and we will remove it.

We hope you find this information helpful!  As always, we wish you the best of luck in your job search.  Any other questions?  Please feel free to leave a comment below!
