In order to approve a resume, the file must be in PDF format; it will need to be converted before being approved and included in the resume book.

Are students able to download and view resume applicants once it is published and archived: This will determine whether or not student users have the ability to view and download resumes when the resume book is in the ‘Published’ and ‘Archived’ state. 

Allow students to apply even when the resume book is published: If set to Yes students will have the ability to apply to the resume book after it is in the ‘Published’ state. If set to No, students will not be allowed to apply to the resume book once it is published.

Is this resume book visible to Employers: This will determine whether or not employer users have the ability to view the resume book at any time.
