Frequently Asked Questions
Can I submit a resume in place of an application?
No. Only an official application will be accepted when applying for a position. Resumes should be included in the application, but will not be accepted in lieu of an application.
What is a PIN?
A PIN is a Personal Identification Number that is automatically generated by the system upon completion of your initial application. With your PIN, you are able to log into the system to ‘update’ your application and submit applications for additional job classes/positions.
What if I forget my PIN?
If you forget your PIN, you may request this number through a prompt at the initial log in screen of the online application. The system will send your PIN to the e-mail address on file.
Is it necessary to contact the Human Resources Department to ask for my non-certificated application to be submitted for specific posted vacancies?
No. With the online application process, it is NOT necessary to contact us to express your interest in a posted vacancy. Once your application is complete and on file with our Human Resources Department, you will automatically be considered for every posted vacancy in your specified job class. For example, if you completed a ‘custodian’ application, when a position is posted for a custodial vacancy, your application will automatically be considered for that vacancy.
