New HR on­line soft­ware: Sim­pli­fy­ing job search­ing

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Job seek­ers of­ten fill out sev­eral em­ploy­ment ap­pli­ca­tions in search of a de­sired ca­reer op­por­tu­nity. Pa­per ap­pli­ca­tions can be mis­placed, take up ex­tra space in your brief­case and take longer to fill out. Charles County Gov­ern­ment now has a quicker, more user-friendly op­tion to search for em­ploy­ment. A new ap­pli­ca­tion sys­tem, NeoGov, al­lows job seek­ers to find in­for­ma­tion on­line and ap­ply for jobs.

Avail­able Charles County Gov­ern­ment job open­ings are on­line at www.CharlesCoun­tyMD.gov/em­ploy­ment-page. This page lists all open jobs, both full-time and part-time. Each list­ing con­tains de­tailed job in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing re­quired ed­u­ca­tion and ex­pe­ri­ence. Hu­man re­sources re­cruiters re­view all ap­pli­ca­tions for rel­e­vant ed­u­ca­tion, ex­pe­ri­ence, skills and knowl­edge.

When you are ready to ap­ply, click on the job of your choice, then click the green “Ap­ply” but­ton, and cre­ate an ac­count. Once your ac­count is cre­ated, com­plete the ap­pli­ca­tion, and up­load a re­sume and other sup­port­ing doc­u­ments.

You can use your NeoGov ac­count to ap­ply for mul­ti­ple Charles County Gov­ern­ment jobs with­out hav­ing to com­plete a new ap­pli­ca­tion each time. Other coun­ties use the same sys­tem, which en­ables you to use one ac­count to ap­ply for jobs in mul­ti­ple ju­ris­dic­tions with­out hav­ing to re­type an ap­pli­ca­tion. Cre­at­ing an ac­count saves valu­able time, and helps fo­cus the job search on rel­e­vant po­si­tions.

Job seek­ers can also take ad­van­tage of alerts for rel­e­vant open­ings. Click on the “Sign Up To Be No­ti­fied” link, and com­plete a Job In­ter­est Card. Then, se­lect your de­sired job cat­e­gories. When hu­man re­sources posts a job ad in your se­lected cat­e­gory, you will no­ti­fied by email.

Hu­man re­sources re­cruiters use NeoGov to com­mu­ni­cate with can­di­dates and send reg­u­lar up­dates on the sta­tus of open jobs. This com­mu­ni­ca­tion takes the guess­work out of the job search for can­di­dates.

If you do not have com­puter ac­cess or need as­sis­tance ap­ply­ing, a com­puter kiosk is avail­able in the Charles County Gov­ern­ment Build­ing (200 Bal­ti­more St., La Plata), out­side the Depart­ment of Hu­man Re­sources. Job seek­ers may also use a com­puter at any Charles County Pub­lic Li­brary branch.

Open doors of op­por­tu­nity to­day by vis­it­ing our web­site at www. CharlesCoun­tyMD.gov, and ap­ply­ing for a new ca­reer. The Depart­ment of Hu­man Re­sources is here to help you be­gin your ca­reer with Charles County Gov­ern­ment.

**Charles County Gov­ern­ment abides by the Equal Op­por­tu­nity Em­ployer State­ment, “It is the pol­icy of Charles County Gov­ern­ment to re­cruit and se­lect the most qual­i­fied per­sons for po­si­tions in the County’s ser­vice. Re­cruit­ment will be con­ducted in an af­fir­ma­tive man­ner to en­sure open com­pe­ti­tion for all po­si­tions, pro­vide Equal Em­ploy­ment Op­por­tu­nity, and to pro­hibit dis­crim­i­na­tion be­cause of race, color, sex, age, na­tional ori­gin, re­li­gious or po­lit­i­cal af­fil­i­a­tion or opin­ion, dis­abil­ity, mar­i­tal sta­tus, sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion, ge­netic in­for­ma­tion, gen­der iden­tity, or any other non-merit fac­tor. The Depart­ment of Hu­man Re­sources will pe­ri­od­i­cally re­view re­cruit­ment pro­cesses to en­sure equal ap­pli­ca­tion to can­di­dates and as­sure screen­ing cri­te­ria is ap­pli­ca­ble to the job.” Paul Ren­sted is the di­rec­tor of the Charles County Depart­ment of Hu­man Re­sources.
