I’ve submitted my application, now what?
Each application is screened to make sure it is fully completed and to see if the applicant meets the minimum qualifications as outlined in the job posting. Human Resources will forward a copy of qualified applications to the appropriate department. Each department will contact applicants they are interested in interviewing when an opening available to external candidates occurs. Depending on the position applied for, you may be required to complete various assessment tests. Should you receive an offer of employment, your offer may be subject to successfully completing a pre-employment physical, drug screen, criminal background check, and/or driving record check.

Unsuccessful applicants who interview for a position will be notified by mail when the position has been filled.

Note: Applicants must be at least 18 years of age to be considered for regular full-time or part-time employment with Black Hawk County.
