Once you’ve submitted your application, you will see a confirmation message that you’ve successfully applied with the organization. To verify the status online, log into your account, and click on the “Application” tab.
If you receive this message, it means that there is an account associated with your email address. You may have previously applied with an organization that is a NEOGOV customer. You can retrieve your credentials by following the “Forgot Username” and/or “Reset Password” steps.
Every account must have a unique email address associated with it. If you share an email address with another person, and it is already in use on another account, you cannot use that email address on your account. You can request a new email address from a service provider (for example, Hotmail, Yahoo, Google), or use a work email address on your account.
You may not share an account with another user. To apply for positions, you must create your own account with your own specific contact information, applications, and application history.
Password reset emails are sent immediately, but delivery can depend on your email provider. Check your spam/junk email settings/folder if you do not receive the email. Sometimes adding the firstname.lastname@example.org address to your contacts resolves this issue. If the email is still is not received after adding the email address listed above, please contact the technical support team at your email service provider to determine if the reset password email is being filtered out or blocked.
If you don’t have access to the email address listed on your account, you will need to contact the technical support team for assistance. For security reasons, the reset password email is sent only to the email address associated with your account. The technical support team will ask you a series of questions to verify your identity, and then update the email address on the account as appropriate.
