How do I get a job with the city? 
Click here to view our process.

Where can I find current jobs available?
Click here to find current job openings.

Can I fill out one application and use it for multiple openings?
A separate application must be completed for each position.

Can I submit a resume in lieu of an application or supplemental questionnaire?
No. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of a fully completed application. One may be submitted as a supplement to the application, but do NOT state "see resume" on the application or response to a supplemental question. This is considered an incomplete response.

Can I submit an application for a position that isn’t currently available?
Applications can only be submitted for open recruitments for the classification being recruited. You can submit an interest card to be notified by email when we begin recruiting for a position in an area you are interested in, within one year. 

How do I submit an interest card for a position that I am interested in?
Interest cards can be submitted two different ways:
1. You can submit an interest card through our online application system, here.
2. You can visit the Human Resources Office and fill out an Interest Card form (you must fill out one card per position).

I am having trouble opening PDF forms. What can I do to open them?
You may have an older version of the Acrobat Reader.  Forms on our website work best with Reader version 5.0 and higher.
