If I upload a new profile in Harvard Careers, will my previously saved information be removed?

Yes. Anytime that you click the upload profile button in Harvard Careers, you are indicating to the system that your currently saved profile is outdated. Therefore, the new profile (resume, i.e.) will overwrite any current information and fill those fields with information parsed from the profile you are uploading. If you are just looking to attach your resume to the application, do so on the next page where the system asks for attachments. If you overwrite your profile, you will need most likely need to edit the information to ensure it parsed correctly. No previous profiles can be retrieved.

No. Once an application has been started, you can only move forward in Harvard Careers. The back button will direct you out of the application (losing any progress) and back to the job description. In order to make edits, continue through the application until you hit the "Review" page. This page allows you to read over all sections of your application and go back to edit any (utilizing the pencil icon button) before submittal.
