It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure accurate contact information is provided and updated as required. Candidates who apply to this selection process should include an email address that accepts email from unknown users (some email systems block these types of email). We will mostly communicate by email, so be sure to keep your contact information up-to-date. It's your responsibility.
