Applications and resumes are reviewed by the Human Resources Department to ensure that the applicant meets the minimum qualifications of the job. It is important to note that only applicants whose experience meets the minimum qualifications are considered. The hiring department then reviews the applications and schedules interviews.

Although all applicants who meet the minimum qualifications are considered, those candidates whose background, experience and education are most closely related to the position may be considered first. Not all applicants will necessarily be interviewed.

Filling a job vacancy can take from 30-90 days, depending on the type of position. To check on the status of an application, please visit GovernmentJobs. You will need to log into your account.
