Important Information Regarding The Application Process
Thank you for considering Doña Ana County as a potential employer. The information below is provided to assist you in successfully navigating the application process.
The first step is to complete an employment application form. Once you have completed the application form, the system will not require you to fill it out again when applying for other opportunities. However, the date accompanying the signature on the bottom of the application must be within six months of the date of the job closing for the application to be considered for the position. Please ensure that the information on your application is up to date each time you apply for a different position. Only the information provided on this application is evaluated when determining compensation. It is important that you ensure your application reflects the correct and current information for your work experience, education, personal information, etc.
If you need to edit/update any information on your Employment Application after you apply for a position, you can do so by logging back into your account and accessing the application on your dashboard. Your Employment Application is located under iForm(s) to Complete. Ensure that you have electronically re-signed the application each time you want to submit a completed application for a position.
After you apply for a position with Doña Ana County, there is a minimum qualification screening based on the education and experience requirements of the position. For applicants who successfully pass the initial qualifications screening, the county’s HR staff will then review and verify the applicant’s relevant experience, education and supplemental question responses.
Applicants cannot proceed in the process if:
- Stated years of related experience cannot be verified within the work experience section of the application (e.g., not enough information provided, insufficient work history, experience listed is not applicable).
- Required education is not listed in the application.
- The application is incomplete in any capacity.
- The candidate only submits a resume. Doña Ana County does not utilize resumes during the recruitment process; however, you may use your resume to auto-populate portions of your application. See that information below in the iCIMS application information.
HR department staff then forward the applications of candidates who meet the minimum qualifications to the hiring department. The hiring department will select applicants for interviews and proceed with the selection process. Due to the high level of interest in some of our positions, not all eligible applicants will be interviewed.
