On your first visit to AIMS, you will need to establish an account. You will be asked to create a User ID and password, along with a reminder question to help you if you forget your password.

To complete your account, click on My Resume and enter some basic information. We recommend that you use the provided Resume Builder to create your resume by typing text into fields. The Resume Builder provides the best format; and it is a great way to make sure that all information about your qualifications is recorded, because it helps you to enter information about your education, employment history, summary of qualifications, and additional notes about certifications, licenses, and awards, in a very organized manner.

If you already have a resume saved on a disk, you can Paste Your Resume into AIMS, but these results are not always as satisfactory. If you use this cut-and-paste process, we recommend that you print and review your pasted resume.

After your AIMS account is established, applying for jobs is simple. When you find a job that you are interested in and for which you believe you are qualified, click on Apply For This Job Now.
