How do I submit a cover letter?

Can I update my resume and/or application once it has been submitted?
Once you have submitted a resume and application, you will not be able to change them.

You can however, withdraw from the job and re-apply with your updated resume/information.
How do I find out the status of my application?
You will receive an acknowledgement email when you have successfully submitted your application. You will be contacted by a talent acquisition consultant if your skills are a match for the job and the hiring process generally takes 1-3 months.

It further allows the Talent Acquisition Consultant and the hiring manager an opportunity to evaluate your qualifications in an accelerated manner, which helps to move applicants through the screening process in a timely manner.
Typically how long is the recruitment and selection process?
