I have created a new portfolio by using a new email address, how do I delete my old portfolio?
If you wish to continue using the new portfolio, the old portfolio will be automatically deleted 12 (twelve) months after the last log in.
If you wish to use the old portfolio and you have not applied for any jobs using the new portfolio, you can log into the new account and use the Caution... Delete my account right now option on the AMS cover sheet. After completing this step, log into the old account (using old email login). Then go to the cover sheet page, change your email address and click on the Submit button.
How do I go about deleting my portfolio from MathJobs completely?
Your portfolio will automatically be deleted 12 months after your last login.
Alternatively, on your cover sheet, where it says, Remove my account and all files once all the jobs I've applied for are finished, you may check this box if you wish to remove all your data from the system (essentially "deleting yourself").
This will cause your files to be deleted 3 months after all the jobs you've applied for are marked "finished" by the employer. Because you have applied for jobs, the employer "owns" the application documents and has a right to access them for a certain period of time. For applicants who never apply for any jobs, checking this box will cause an account to be deleted after 6 months.
How long does my portfolio stay on MathJobs?
Old applicant accounts will automatically be deleted 6 months after all jobs applied for are finished.
An account is deleted after 3 months if it is marked to be removed once the applicant's jobs are finished (see previous question above) — or if it is marked as "off market" by the applicant.
If an applicant hasn't tried to login for 12 months, the account will be deleted at that point.
I am having trouble uploading documents to my portfolio. Are there special formats?
Yes, here is a list of the acceptable formats: PDF, Word, Excel, PPT, WP, Office, OpenOffice, Postscript, DVI, GIF, JPEG, PNG, LaTex, Tex, RTF, URL, XML, HTML, TEXT (use the URL format with caution). If you still continue to have problems, then contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
Which files from my portfolio do employers have access to when I apply for a particular job?
Employers only have access to the files that you select when applying for that particular job, plus they can see the basic data on your coversheet. However employers have no way of seeing the rest of your materials; e.g., extra documents or other pending applications.
