All job postings are now available 24/7 on line.  Also, applications can be made to any of the available positions through the on line site.  This new electronic system has replaced a paper intensive employment application process, which was cumbersome and labor intensive. With the new system, individual applications can be tracked electronically from beginning to end. This can speed up the hiring process by minimizing the amount of time it takes to process applications.

For those individuals who may not be familiar with the use of computers, work stations will be made available within the office of Human Resources, on the third floor of Municipal Center West, where people can apply on line and receive personal assistance with the new software. Additionally, computers at Lincoln Library can access the employment application system for added convenience.
