  1. How do I register for a free MyCareerE3 account?

    On the home page, click “Login/Register” in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. You will be required to select an account type, and should select "Organization." In order to ensure your company is not already registered, the system will request you enter your organization’s name. Slowly type your organization’s name in the text box and a list will populate below. If you see your organization in the dropdown list, that means there is an existing account. Click on your organization’s name. Some of the registration fields will disappear because MyCareer3E already has your organization’s information on the site. A registered user from your organization will be notified of your request and will review your information to confirm your account.
