How to Apply Online

Office hours for public computer application use (and testing if necessary) are Monday thru Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please note if using a personal computer: Applications can only be submitted using Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer 11. Earlier versions of Internet Explorer will not allow you to submit an application.

Click on the "Applicant Login" tab

Click on "Create an Account" or "Create Your Account Here".

The "Request New Job Seeker Account" screen will appear.

Create an account.

  1. All starred items MUST be answered.

  3. Create a user ID
    1. A User ID can be anything you want.
    2. There are no restrictions on upper or lower case.
  4. Create a password
    1. The password has several restrictions. It must contain at least 8 characters (no spaces): 1 must be a letter (either upper or lower case) 1 must be a number, and 1 must be a special character such as !#$%^&*() or +. The underscore will not work.
    2. Do not forget your user name and/or password! We do not have access to this information and cannot reset them. NeoGov can send a link to your email account to change your password.
    3. Click on the "Save" button.
    4. The password is the hardest part of the whole process - the rest is a breeze.

Click on "Create Application".

Starting your application

  1. The application needs a name which will only be seen by you. Several applications can be in the system for several types of jobs. Examples could be educational application, or accounting application, or administrative application, or general labor application, etc.
  2. Separate accounts do not need to be created for each job you apply for; however, you must apply separately for each job. Applying once for a position does not keep an application "on file" each time a position title comes open in the future. You must apply each time it opens.
  3. Click on "Create Application."
