Salary Position description Examples of necessary knowledge and abilities Minimum qualifications Special requirements Information about the testing process Type of recruitment (open, promotional, or continuous) Type of exam (written, oral, etc.) How to submit required documents when applying on-line Tentative final filing or cut-off dates Supplemental instructions and questions
Unofficial transcripts are acceptable and but must list the student name, institution name, field of study, and date the degree was awarded. Copies of diplomas should indicate your name, the name of the school, a specific field of study, and date of graduation. If applicable, required documentation should be submitted with each application. Please do not send originals; copies of the required documents are acceptable. No submitted documents will be returned. For recent graduates who have not received proof of their degree yet, a letter from the registrar’s office stating that all requirements for graduation have been met and listing the field of study will be sufficient proof of graduation.
The applicant does not provide enough detail about their work experience and duties in the Work Experience section on their application. For example, if you are applying for Automotive Mechanic, just writing “10 years as mechanic at XYZ Ford” doesn’t provide enough detail about your duties. Writing “As a mechanic at XYZ Ford dealership, I performed computerized diagnostics, repaired and replaced all components of the drive train, specialized in repairing hybrid vehicles, and did trouble-shooting of difficult electrical problems.” provides enough information to assess your experience to see if it meets the Minimum Qualifications.
Required documents are not attached to the application, such as a transcript, diploma, or typing certificate. If the Job Announcement states you must attach documents to substantiate your education or certifications, your application will be rejected if you don’t.
