Confirmation email?
« on: April 15, 2016, 14:58:56 »
Hello!

I sent in my application online around a month ago (for infantry). I've yet to receive any sort of confirmation. Do they send a confirmation email I may have missed? Should I go to the recruiting office to confirm it was received?

It's killing me. I don't want to be stuck flipping burgers because I forgot to check my spam folder.

From Ask a CAF Recruiter,

I submitted my application. Whats Next?

After submitting your application:

        You should receive an email within 5-7 business days after the submission of your online application, giving you further direction on the next steps to take in the application process.

   To ensure that you receive correspondence between yourself and Canadian Armed Forces Recruiting the following is recommended:

•   Adding the email address "@forces.gc.ca" to your Safe Senders list in your email account is recommended, as there have been instances where email communications between Recruiting Detachments and applicants are filtered out and end up in the junk/spam mail folder.
•   Check your junk/spam email folder in case Forces emails continue to be filtered out.
•   Check up on the status of your application every 30 days with the Recruiting Detachment processing your application.
•   Ensure that you are checking the email account that you provided on your application.
___________________________________________________________________

If you have applied and have not yet received an email within 10 business days of submitting your online application, or if you would like to know the status of your application, it is recommended that you do the following:

•   Visit the link to our Forces site, ( http://www.forces.ca/en/page/contactus-73 ) and submit a status update request for your application.
•   If you know your application number, include it in the email.
•   If you do not know your application number, ensure you include your first name, last name, date of birth and the postal code of your home address. This will ensure that the recruiter who receives your email can locate your application and provide you with a status update.

My sons confirmation email went in to the junk folder for some reason, so you should check there as well.

It's killing me. I don't want to be stuck flipping burgers because I forgot to check my spam folder.

When you apply "online", you should receive the first email right away or within 2 hours which acknowledges receipt of your application.  After that, should come a follow up email within 3-5 business days.   If you did not receive the 2nd email, you should either contact your local CFRC or send an email to "I have already applied to the Forces and want to know the status of my application."  at the link below.  They will definitely be able to help you.

Hey folks,

Wanted to ask here before I call in - to avoid looking silly.

Just submitted my application. I've got the 'confirmation letter' in my browser, on the Forces application portal.

Nothing in my email, as the letter might suggest. Nothing in the spam folder.

Note: My company operates it's own email server. From what I can see, the email never made it to our server. I submitted the application near 11pm - is it an automated reply or does it need to be 'sent' from a person who accepts the application, during business hours?

"I have already applied to the Forces and want to know the status of my application."  at the link below.

Did this - also had the admin on my end add forces.gc.ca to the global whitelist, just in case.

Hi!

As far as I remember, I received an automated email from "eRecruiting@dnd.ca" telling that they received my application. A business day after I received this message, I received another email, but this time, from the Canadian Forces Recruiting Detachment in Quebec asking me to prepare for my first appointment.

If you didn't add "dnd.ca" at your whitelist, this may be why you didn't receive the first message, but don't worry: If you added "@forces.gc.ca", you should receive the next (and most important) emails.

In case you do not receive any emails in the next few business days, I would suggest waiting a few more before contacting your Detachment: they might be overwhelmed right now and I'm pretty sure they need to process this manually.

The email from eRecruiting@dnd.ca that you should have received shortly after submitting your online application:

Good day. This notice is to confirm the receipt of your on-line employment application to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and to inform you that your file has been opened at the Canadian Forces Recruiting Group. Based on your eligibility, CAF recruiting priorities and occupation availability a decision will be made whether or not to process your application. Should it be determined that your application will be processed, you will be notified by us and your file will then be transferred to the recruiting centre closest to you. Thank you for your interest in the CAF.

The best way to get any information is go to your local CFRC and ask.
