Employment applications for the County of San Diego use to be several pages long and required you to fill out the form in black or blue ink. Messy handwriting, misspelled words and missing data were common on applications. In an effort to save money and stream line the employment application process, the County of San Diego is no longer accepting paper applications.
The benefits for working for the county are above average for the mainstream work force, causing many job seekers to look for employment with several government agencies. Paid holidays, paid vacation, health and dental care, retirement and 401K plans are all reasons to seek employment with San Diego County. No matter what skills you have, the county is big enough that you should be able to find a job position where your skills are needed. Any one from a doctor to an exterminator to a cook can seek employment with the county. Not all jobs are clerical, and not everyone is stuck in an office cubicle all day.
Take the leap and check out what jobs are available within the county. You no longer need to go to the Human Resources Department in downtown San Diego, find parking, walk past security to the HR office and search paper applications in pockets on the wall, looking for a job with the county. The San Diego County Human Resources office at the 1600 Pacific Highway has recently completed their remodeling project. You can apply for a county job on-line at home, the library or at the HR Department on Pacific Highway.
The remodel project has removed the paper applications from the wall, replaced the photocopier with a scanner and installed computers in the lobby so you can search for your best job opportunity. When you walk into the lobby, you will notice a large flat screen television that provides updated job information and customer service videos about the county. The videos will help explain the job search process and give you valuable information about the different kinds of jobs available in the county. You can easily fill out the application on line, presenting your application in neat type that anyone, including a scanner, can read. 99.5% of all jobs are listed in the computer database “NEOGOV” and they only accept on-line applications.
By going to paperless applications, San Diego County has cut down on paper cost, reproduction cost, and copier fees. Placing all job information on-line has simplified the task of searching for work by allowing the job seeker to search from their home, their office or public library. Complete job descriptions are available on-line, including pay rate, benefits and special job qualifications.
