Hiring Process

New Job Postings

New job announcements are posted on the City's Current Job Openings page. Additionally, you can create Job Alerts to receive email notices about new jobs in your specific field(s) of interest.

How To Submit An Application

Jobseekers are required to create an account with a User ID and password, then create a profile manually, or by uploading a resume that is then parsed into the account.

After this has been completed, jobseekers can click on the Apply tab for the job they are interested in. Next they will complete a series of steps, which may include answering questions, etc. The number and type of steps are determined by the employer who is hiring for the job. They will also have an opportunity to upload relevant or requested attachments. When the steps are completed, on the Certify & Submit page, they will click on Accept and Submit to submit their application.

Please note that as part of the application process, you must do all of the following:

  1. Respond to all questions on the supplemental questionnaire, and
  2. Fully complete all sections of the application and understand that all answers to supplemental questions must be substantiated in your application.

You will receive an email stating your application has been received. You can then follow the status of jobs you've applied for by checking Application Status in your account.

Now That Your Application Has Been Submitted

Applications are reviewed against the job's qualifications and requirements—based on the information in the job announcement—to find the applicants that are the best fit.

To remain in consideration for the job, applicants' submissions must clearly demonstrate that they meet...

  • All the Minimum Qualifications (education, training and experience)
  • All the Special Requirements (e.g. certificates and licenses, physical requirements, etc.)
  • As many Preferred Qualifications as possible

Unless otherwise specified in the job announcement, when considering an applicant’s qualifications and whether they meet those specified in the job announcement, education and experience equivalencies will apply.

Interview Process

The hiring department decides which applicants from the Referred List will be interviewed. Not every applicant will be interviewed.

Interviews are usually conducted by a panel of three or more people.

All interview processes involve at least an oral exam. Other processes may include a hands-on skills test, written test, performance test and/or assessment center.

Reference checks will be completed prior to initiating a job offer.

Job Offer and Pre-Employment Process

After a final decision is made by the hiring managers, an offer of employment is made to the applicant who was determined to be the best match for the position.

All interviewed applicants who did not get a job offer are notified—by email of the final outcome of the selection process.

Prior to starting work, a background check will be required for all applicants offered employment.
