Tips For Applying
Please state clearly the name of the position for which you are applying.
Applications remain active for 90 days. After 90 days, you must submit a new application.
Every open position has closing date information at the bottom of the posting. Applications/resumes must be received in the Human Resources Department (or must be postmarked) by the listed closing date to be considered.
If the closing date is listed as "open until filled," applications will be reviewed once a week by the Personnel Department, and applicants who most closely match the requirements listed will be referred to the hiring department for review. If you are interested in a position that has "open until filled" as the closing date, you should apply as soon as possible. "Open until filled" positions are removed when the position is filled without further notice being given.
Some positions require a valid driver's license, and other positions may require a typing test. Please read the job posting closely to determine (1) if you need to provide a copy of your driver's license (photograph on license should be covered so no picture is shown), or (2) if you need to appear in person at the Personnel office to take a typing test. Applications submitted without a typing test when required or driver's license information when required will not be considered.
City staff must certify typing test results and cannot accept typing test results from other sources.
If you need special accommodation for any portion of the application or hiring process contact the ADA coordinator.
