How do I apply for a job?

The online application process has four steps:

  1. Reviewing the job listing and all documents listed under the title, then selecting "Apply Online" for the position of interest.
  2. Registering by creating a unique User ID and password. This will enable you to come back and apply for additional positions as well as check on the status of a position. 
  3. Creating, completing, reviewing and submitting your online application. 
  4. Application confirmation received in the inbox of your registered email address that will include your Applicant ID number.

It's important that you read and follow all instructions carefully.  Review the Job Opportunities web page to find any open positions that interest you. Once you identify an open position of interest, click on the job title to bring up the Job Announcement, click on the "Required Additional Information" link for exam and specific requirements  for the position. Review the details, if you meet the qualifications and would like to apply to the posting, click on the associated link that says "Apply Online". This will begin the application process. Once the application is completed, you will receive a confirmation number via email. This email confirms that we received your application for this position.
