ROOT ERROR MESSAGE: Why did I receive an error message after I tried to save my completed online application?

The applicant tracking system will not save all completed fields if the information isn't saved every 10-15 minutes while registering and applying for the first time.

Applicants only need to register once. You may log into the system at any time to update your personal information. 

I added a job to my wish list, but now I am unable to apply.
