Tips for Other Written Materials

Many applicants submit a cover letter with their application packets. This is an opportunity to inform the hiring department how your experience, training, skills, and career aspirations apply to the specifics of the vacancy. It also gives you the chance to discuss items that may not be clear on the application or resume, such as why you have made frequent job changes or wish to leave your current job.

About the Application Process

Departments receive all applications the day after closing. After reviewing the applications, the department calls selected candidates for interviews. This process may take two or three weeks. Departments notify all applicants by letter when the hiring process is complete.

Now compare that list with your own skills, experience, and qualities. Think of examples from your background that demonstrate you have these qualifications. Practice describing your qualifications verbally.

Tips for a good interview:

There are certain general questions that all applicants should be prepared to respond to. The following questions are commonly asked during interviews:

The manner in which you respond to questions and the thought given to the response enters into the final decision to invite you to a follow-up interview, offer you the job, or send you a rejection letter.
