Please read carefully the instructions listed below before filing an application:
Applications are accepted for County examinations only when a bulletin is posted which
announces that the examination is open and applications are being accepted.
Applicants must submit applications specifically how and/or where the bulletin states
the application should be filed. For instance, in many cases, applications must be
submitted directly to the personnel office or other designated location of the department
which is giving the examination. In other cases, the bulletin information may state that
the application must be filed in person. Follow these filing instructions explicitly, as
the application could be delayed or disqualified.
Examinations usually have deadline dates by which application must be submitted. This
means that the application must be received in the designated location by the closing
date, otherwise the application will be rejected as late. A postmark by the closing
date is not sufficient.
An applicant should file an application as soon as possible. This is due to the fact
that some examinations only remain open "until the needs of the service are met."
Therefore, when a department determines enough applications have been received, the
examination may be closed immediately at the end of that business day.
Applicants must carefully read all instructions on the bulletin and on the information
sheet attached to the application form. Additional information may be required,
including proof of degrees or licenses required for the position.
Any false statements of material facts or omissions may subject the applicant to
disqualification or dismissal.
