Application Process






Once you complete the Employment Application form, the system will not require you to fill it out again every time you apply for a position. 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. Further, candidates are responsible for ensuring their information on their application is up to date each time they apply for a different position.  The candidate is responsible for ensuring their application reflects the correct and current information for their 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 you electronically sign the application each time you access the form in order to submit a completed application.   




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. This process is done using the iCIMS system.  For candidates who successfully pass the initial iCIMS screening, the county’s HR staff will then review and verify the applicant’s relevant experience, education and supplemental question responses. 

Applications will be rejected if:

HR Department staff then forward the qualified candidates and their application to the department with the job opening for review and the department-specific interview and selection process then takes place. All interviews and the subsequent hiring approval requests are generated by the department with the position opening.

Due to the high level of interest in some of our positions, not all eligible applicants will be interviewed.
