The Personnel Commission reviews the application materials submitted.These materials may include a special supplemental experience statement, a list of college and/or training courses and/or a list of specific employment experiences. For your application to get the consideration it deserves, it is very important that you fill out the application materials completely. You may also include a resume. Do not, however, 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 Experience Statement will be required so that you can more fully explain specific experience or qualifications.
The supplemental statement 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 included with the application, but only your responses to the areas in the application and supplemental experience statement will be evaluated.
Include not only paid work experience, but all other experience which may apply to the job, i.e., volunteer work 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.
Since there is usually 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.
