Every time I go to the website see image below with links.
Under the search Job or Search Job By Country. I could not go further. The link would not work under IE. However it does work under FireFox. I go back and forth and wondered why this is happening as my wife uses IE exclusively. So I need to have this ready for her.
She cannot apply for jobs from her computer on IE8 presently.

Does it work with IE on other computers? If so, then it sounds like there's something screwy going on with your wifes computer. If this is the case you can either reinstall IE or install another browser, such as Firefox, Safari or Chrome. All of those are pretty easy to use and intuitive, especially if she is familiar with IE. Hope his helps!

I found those links in your MHT attachment to be "clickable" - using IE8.

The actual HP site - http://h10055.www1.hp.com/jobsathp/

Reset IE - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737

If no-go, try another user account.

It sounds like your issue might be limited to your wife's computer. If so try the reset and/or try another browser. If she is using the other browser temporarily, just for job searches, etc. it shouldn't be a big deal. Hope this helps!

I am going to try to get her to switch to Chrome and see if she likes that. Thanks.
