Engineering Apprentice, Dropbox IGNITE (2021) Technical issue.

I applied for the Engineering Apprentice, Dropbox IGNITE (2021) and got a message saying that an error occurred. Was my application saved? I know this is the last day to apply so I'm a little nervous.

Dropbox IGNITE apprenticeship program 404 error

Hello,

 

I tried to apply to the Dropbox IGNITE apprenticeship program, which I understand is open until today (February 17). I got a 404 not found error when I submitted, and have not been able to access the page in subsequent tries. Is there another channel that I can submit through given this error? I'd really appreciate any information on this, as I would truly love to be considered.

 

Thank you!

Hi @WebbScript and @fu510, sorry to hear about this!

You should have received an email after applying for the position, could you check in your inbox and see if you received anything about this?

Keep me posted!

Hello @Daphne,

Thank you for responding so quickly. I checked my inbox as well as my spam and did not see an email regarding my application’s submission. How should I proceed?

Hi @Daphne,

 

Thank you so much for the response! I did not receive a confirmation email after hitting the submit button - just the 404 error page, so I am wondering if it did not go through. If you could let me know what else I can do, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the updates!

Do you happen to have a screenshot of the error message to send to me here? The visual is always helpful.

Sadly, I did not get a screen shot. But the message said something akin to “there was an error on this page but don’t worry your information was saved and a Dropboxer was notified.” I became nervous when I did not get the email confirmation.

Hi @WebbScript, after looking into this further, applications were closed at 5pm on February 17th.

If you tried to apply after that time, then you would get that error message since the deadline had expired.

Hi Jay,
Thanks for the information. 5pm in what time zone? I also encountered this error, but I assumed the deadline would be 11:59pm PST on 2/17 since the job posting only mentioned February 17th, no specific time.
