Beginning June 26th, 2013, the E-mail address saved in your Wisc.Jobs account will be the new way to access your Wisc.Jobs job cart vs. the Username. Every user will need to have a unique e-mail address and password to log in to their job cart. Your password will not be affected.
After June 26th, you will not be able to log in to your Wisc.Jobs account without an email address.
What does this mean?
For most Wisc.Jobs users, this change will not substantially impact you. When logging into your account in Wisc.Jobs, instead of entering your username in the "username" field, you will be prompted to enter your e-mail address. You will continue to use the password you initially set up for your account.
What if I don't have an e-mail address?
Prior to June 26th, you need to sign up for an e-mail address and then log in to your job cart on Wisc.Jobs and enter your e-mail address in the Personal Information section.
There are several providers that offer free e-mail accounts. Links to a few of these are included below:
How do I add or update my e-mail address in my job cart?
To update your e-mail address in your job cart, go to http://wisc.jobs and click on the yellow button at the top of the page that says "My Job Cart". Prior to June 26th, enter your username and password, then press "Log In". This will take you to your job cart. From your job cart, click on the box that says "Update Personal Information" on the right. From here you can add an e-mail address, update your e-mail address or update any other contact information.
What happens if I don't have an e-mail address in my job cart by June 26th, 2013?
Once this new login process is implemented on June 26th, if you do not have an e-mail address in your job cart, you will not be able to access your job cart, and you will not be able to create a new job cart in Wisc.Jobs. If this happens, you will need to contact the Wisc.Jobs help desk to add your e-mail address to your job cart in order for you to log in.
What if I share an e-mail address with another person, and that person also has an account on Wisc.Jobs?
Prior to June 26th, every Wisc.Jobs user will need to ensure their individual account has a unique e-mail address assigned to it, and no one else's. If multiple accounts have the same e-mail address listed in them, the users of those accounts will not be able to log in to them after June 26th without contacting the Wisc.Jobs helpdesk.
