DOUGLAS COUNTY LAUNCHES ON-LINE APPLICATION TRACKING AND EMPLOYEE ONBOARDING SYSTEM


Chairman Dr. Romona Jackson Jones and the Douglas County Board of Commissioners are excited to share news of a new convenient and efficient process for Douglas County and surrounding communities to apply for employment within the county. "This 21st-century technology called "CivicHR" promotes a smooth online application tracking and employee onboarding system that will allow for ease in the recruitment and onboarding of new county employees," said Chairman Dr. Romona Jackson Jones.

"CivicHR" will replace our current paper application process and will allow candidates to apply online, create their account and use multiple job postings without having to submit a new paper application each time they apply," said County Administrator, Mark Teal. "Candidates will also have the ability to forward vacancy announcements to associates and colleagues."

"This new online application process will have a profound effect on the County's ability to recruit the best and brightest talent," said Director of Human Resources, Frederick Perry. "Candidates can access the online application process either through the county website or our new Career Portal."

The initial application process is quick and easy. If an applicant is not selected for the first position applied for, the candidate can apply for another post, and the system will allow them to edit the original application to align their knowledge, skills, and abilities with the new job.

Candidates will have the capability to upload their resume, a cover letter and any additional documents they deem important or materials that a hiring department identifies as necessary to apply for the position such as college degrees, training certifications, and professional licenses.

"We are incredibly excited about this upgrade to the County's recruitment and onboarding process, and we're confident that applicants will find it beneficial as well," said Chairman Dr. Romona Jackson Jones.
