Anoka County’s online application process allows you to save your application information so that you can apply for jobs without re-entering the same information.
If you do not have access to a personal computer, listed below are locations where free public computers may be available for use in accessing the online job and application information. Please contact these local organizations directly to confirm hours of operation.
As you complete the online application and supplemental questionnaire for a county position, be sure to emphasize the skills and experience that prepared you most for the type of work for which you are applying. Keep a copy of your completed application for your records. You must submit your application materials no later that 4:30 p.m. on the closing date.
To apply for an opening, complete the online application by clicking “Apply to this position” at the bottom of the job announcement and then clicking “New Users.” There are four parts to the application.
Part 1: Registration
This part of your application includes general information about you as an applicant, password entry, and job notification preferences. After completing the registration, you will be given a user ID and password which you can use to update your application information and apply to additional jobs. Be sure to make note of your user ID and password.
Part 2: Applicant Profile
This section contains information about your employment background and qualifications that will be used to assess how well you match the requirements of the job. It is important that your application show all the relevant education and experience you possess. Applications may be rejected if incomplete. It is beneficial to review and update, if needed, your answers to the core questions for every opening to which you apply.
Part 3: Supplemental Questions
Most online job announcements require you to answer questions related specifically to the position for which you are applying. If the job does not require you to answer supplemental questions, you will skip Part 3 and the system will take you directly to Part 4.
Part 4: Application Confirmation
When you have successfully completed the online application, you will be taken to a screen which reads, “Your application has been submitted.” This confirms that your application has been submitted to the county‘s database. After it is submitted, your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted if you are selected to move forward in the hiring process.
