Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A JOB?

If you find a job that you are interested in, it is very important that you read the directions on the Job Announcement carefully and follow them exactly, as not all job announcements require the same things from a candidate. Once you have read and understand how to proceed, you will need to fill out a job application and submit it to our department either online, by mail, fax or in person.

CAN I SUBMIT MY RESUME OR COVER LETTER WITHOUT AN APPLICATION?


No. You must submit an application to be considered for employment. Resumes submitted without an application will not be considered.

I APPLIED FOR A POSITION A FEW WEEKS AGO AND I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING YET. HOW DO I FIND OUT IF I'M BEING CONSIDERED FOR THE POSITION?

Please be assured that we make every effort to contact applicants in a timely manner. For your convenience, updates on the status of our positions can also be found on the Previous Job Posting Status page.

ONE OF THE POSITIONS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO APPLY FOR REQUIRES CLERICAL TESTING. HOW DO I TAKE THE CLERICAL TESTING?


Clerical testing is by invitation only. An Ingham County representative will contact you if you are being considered for a position and schedule a date and time for a clerical testing.
