What happens after I file my application?

You will receive a confirmation e-mail from the Human Resources and Risk Management Team acknowledging receipt.  After the closing date, applications are screened for the qualifications.  You will receive notification on the status of your application and the next step in the recruitment process by e-mail within 2 to 3 weeks of the recruitment closing date.  NOTE:  It is important that you inform Human Resources and Risk Management if you change your e-mail address by calling 626-852-4821.

How does the Human Resources and Risk Management Department determine if I qualify for a position?

Your submitted application materials are reviewed to determine if you meet the qualifications and special requirements as stated on the job flyer.  Only those candidates who appear best qualified, based on the requirements listed on the flyer and review of all submitted applications, resumes and supplemental materials for background, experience and training, will be invited to any combination of written, performance or oral appraisals to further evaluate their job related experience, knowledge, skills and abilities.  You should be sure to include all experience which may apply to the job, i.e., volunteer experience, licenses, certifications, professional affiliations, classes you have taken, training you have received and any other special qualifications.  Failure to include all information requested could result in your not being invited to participate in the next step of the selection process.

 

What are the steps or stages of the selection process?

The steps of the selection process vary depending upon the position.  For example, you may be required to pass a written exam or submit a sample of your writing.  A performance test may be required for a position requiring certain skills, such as typing or the operation of heavy equipment.  For other positions, you may be required to participate in an oral board examination.  Should you need a reasonable accommodation in the selection process, a request must be made prior to the test or interview.  The selection process is determined by the hiring department and the Human Resources & Risk Management Department.

 

What is an employment list?

An employment list is the list that is established after a recruitment has been conducted and all examinations have been completed.  The list contains, in rank order, those applicants who successfully complete the examination process.  The hiring department contacts eligible candidates for selection interviews and determines which candidate would be the best fit for the available position.  Eligibility lists expire six months from the date that the list is established; however, the Human Resources and Risk Management Department reserves the right to extend the life of an eligibility list or abolish the list early, per the provisions listed in the City’s Personnel Rules.

 

IN CONCLUSION

Although the selection process for a recruitment may seem to take some time to complete, it’s only through this careful evaluation process that we can ensure that all applicants are evaluated fairly.  The time and effort involved in this process enables us to select the best applicant for the job.
