A Human Resources representative is assigned to each position that is posted.
He or she is there to assist you throughout the entire application process.
You can find out the name of this person by contacting the Office of Human
If you are interested in an available position, you must submit an
application to the Office of Human Resources by the closing date listed on the
job announcement. If you are interested in more than one position, you must
submit a separate application for each position. Qualified applicants are
notified following the closing date of the job announcement regarding any
testing requirements that may be involved in the process.
Upon the completion of testing, you will receive a letter stating your final
score and your ranking on the eligible list, if applicable. All eligible lists
remain in effect for a period of one year.
In most cases, the top five ranked candidates on an eligible list are invited
to a selection interview. A diverse panel of subject matter experts,
including the department’s hiring manager, conducts the interview and determines
which candidate is the best fit for the position. Applicants who are
not selected are notified by mail, but their names remain on the eligible list
for possible future vacancies until the one-year expiration of the list.
Once a selection is made, the Office of Human Resources will contact you with
a tentative employment offer. You will then be scheduled for a pre-employment
physical examination (including drug and alcohol testing) and asked to provide
information for a background check. Your starting date is coordinated to provide
ample time for a two-week notice to any current employer.
