Starting the Application Process
When directed to the Current Job Postings page, you can apply online by selecting the job title you are interested in. After viewing the Job Description, click the 'Apply' tab in the top right corner.
If this is the first time you are applying using our online job application, you will need to create an account and select a Username and Password. After your account has been established, you can import your resume from LinkedIn, upload it from a saved document on your computer, or manually enter your personal information. This application will be saved and used to apply for future job openings.
Online applications are stored on a secure site. Only authorized employees and hiring authorities have access to the information submitted.
Applicants will be tested in groups as they apply. Successful applicants, regardless of their testing date, will be ranked on the eligible list based on their final examination scores. The original rank of persons on the eligible list may change as later applicants are tested and added to the list. Notice of the last date to apply for an examination will be posted in the Human Resources Department and on the posting one week prior to the application deadline. Applications will not be accepted after the posted closing date.
The purpose of the examinations is to establish an eligible list from which to fill present or possible future vacancies in each classification. For each vacancy, a Department Director/Division Manager has the choice of the applicants in the top group. This list will remain in effect for six months unless exhausted, superseded by a new eligible list or extended for another six months by the Human Resources Committee.
CLOSING WITHOUT A DATE
For a continuous examination, applications will be accepted until such time as there are sufficient applicants to meet the County's current recruitment needs. As such, interested persons should make an application promptly. Due to the volume of applications received, not all applicants are granted an opportunity to interview. If you are selected to interview, county staff will contact you typically within 30 days after the advertised closing date.
Uploading Work History from your Resume
You are required to include your work experience in the Work Experience Section of your NEOGOV application. If you have previously included work history on a resume you must transfer your work history into the Work Experience Section prior to applying. Attached resumes will not be reviewed or considered. Please review the job posting, specifically the purpose of the position and the minimum qualifications, prior to answering the work experience questions; and note that only related work experience will be considered.
NOTE: Provide full detail in the employment history section noting the skills, experience and hours worked per week pertaining to the minimum qualifications. Applications may be rejected if incomplete.
By filling out the Job Application and transmitting it to Oakland County via the Internet, I am consenting to provide the County with the personally identifiable information contained in the application document. The information you provide in the job application may be kept and used by the County for its purposes in accordance with its applicable policies.
The Michigan Freedom of Information Act, as well as other legal processes, control access to personally identifiable information and public records. Information you supply to the County may be subject to disclosure.
Please contact NEOGOV directly at (855) 524-5627, if you encounter application difficulty.
