Things to consider:
It is important to know that once you submit your application, you may not be able to make changes to some of your information.

What happens with the references I provide?
When you apply for a specific job, you authorize the University to contact any of your schools, current and former employers, or other references for the purpose of verifying information and/or obtaining an account of your education, work experience and skills.
Please note that the point at which your prospective hiring official will contact your employer may vary; however, this is most commonly done on a pre-employment basis usually after the initial interview. This practice is rarely performed on a pre-interview basis. If you have concerns about having your current employer contacted, please communicate those concerns to the person who conducts your initial interview to determine what, if any, alternatives exist.
