How does the Classified Personnel Department determine if I qualify for this job?
The Classified Personnel Department representative assigned to the recruitment reviews the application materials submitted. These materials may include a special supplemental questionnaire, a list of college and/or training courses or a checklist of experience. For your application to get the consideration it deserves, it is very important that you fill out the application materials completely, even if you attach a resume. Do not state "see resume" when asked to describe your responsibilities and experience. Your qualifications will be evaluated on the basis of information you provide on the application. Your resume will be reviewed only for clarification purposes. Frequently, a Supplemental Application will be required so that you can more fully explain specific experience or qualifications. The supplemental questionnaire focuses on the key responsibilities of the position for which you are applying and allows you to elaborate on your previous experience/training in areas of particular relevance to the job. Resumes, letters of reference, certifications, etc., may be attached, but only your responses to the areas in the questionnaire or application will be evaluated. Include not only paid work experience, but all other experience which may apply to the job, i.e., volunteer experience, licenses, professional affiliations, classes you have taken, training you have received and any other special qualifications. Failure to include all information requested could result in the rejection of your application. With accurate and complete information, we will be able to determine whether you meet the minimum qualifications for the job class. However, qualifications beyond the minimum requirements may be necessary to qualify you for placement on the eligible list. Since there generally is a large number of applications for each recruitment, the evaluation process can take several days. We realize the wait can be frustrating, but please be patient. We want to give each application the careful consideration it deserves.
