Getting Started

How do I search for job openings?
From Find Jobs and Apply, enter Legacy's Talent Acquisition Portal (TAP) by clicking the "Applicant" button if you are an external applicant and clicking the "Employee" button if you are a current Legacy employee. Without logging into the portal, you can browse our open positions and refer a friend to a specific job. If you create a user name and password and sign in to the portal, you will also be able to apply for open positions and check the status of your application, as well as set up email alerts for jobs of interest to you.

If I used to work for Legacy, may I sign in using the "Employee" button?
Only Legacy employees who have a current Legacy employee number may sign in using the "Employee" button.

May I send you my CV or résumé to keep on file?
No. Legacy does not accept CVs, résumés or applications for positions that are not posted on our website. When you complete an application for a position, you may have an opportunity to attach your résumé for certain job openings. If the job that you're applying for is accepting résumés, you will be prompted to upload this information at the end of the online application.

I'm a Legacy employee. Do I need to complete the whole application every time I apply for a new position?
Once you create your user profile in Legacy's Talent Acquisition Portal (TAP), any subsequent application will automatically include the work history and education information from your profile. To get started, click the "Employee" button on Find Jobs and Apply.

I want to apply for a position I saw yesterday, but now it's not there.
Applications are accepted only for positions that are open today. If you saw the job yesterday, but it's not there today, that means it's no longer open for applications.
