Check CCNet regularly for your status. Especially if you’re designated an alternate by an employer, be sure to keep track of important dates.
Some employers will request that you submit a copy of your transcript. You’ll need to create a text document of your grades, since the Cornell Registrar does not provide electronic versions of transcripts. To do this:
go to Bear Access
click on Student Services folder
click on JTF (Just the Facts) folder; enter your netid and password
click on Grades in left-side bar; if bar is not bolded, press Continue at the bottom of your screen and click on Grades again
select All Grades
copy and paste your grades into a Microsoft Word (or other text) document and save it
upload your transcript document into CCNet (see CCNet basics if you need instructions)
Sometimes you might find that you're unable to submit a résumé for a job you're interested in. The most common reasons this happens are:
Your graduation date doesn't fall within the range of dates the employer specified.
Your employment eligibility doesn't match employer's requirements.
Your educational level is not what the employer is interviewing for.
