How to apply

DCBS encourages all candidates who meet the qualifications to apply when the job announcement is open for application.

When applying to an open job announcement, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Carefully read the job announcement – The announcement contains instructions on how to apply and what documents to submit, as well as the qualifications, and requested and required skills for the job. This will help you customize your application materials for the position.
  • Contact information – Make it easier for the hiring manager to contact you by providing a daytime telephone number and an email address.
  • Transcripts – If you are using education to meet the qualifications, be prepared to bring copies of your official transcripts to your interview, if requested. You may also attach your transcripts to your application before you submit it.
  • Veterans’ preference – If you are a veteran requesting veterans’ preference, be sure to check your Workday account for pending tasks. Workday will send you a task after your application has been submitted requesting your veteran documentation.
  • Attachments – Be sure to attach your resume to your online application form if it is requested. Forgetting to attach your resume will keep your application from being considered further. Scroll to the bottom of the “My Experience” section and attach in the box titled “Resume/CV.”
  • Submit your application materials by the closing date and time – The announcement lists the deadline for submission. Do not wait until the last minute to apply. Late submissions will not be accepted.
  • Application process – Create/update your application or review tips for completing the state online application process.
  • Current state employees – Current state employees must apply for jobs using their Workday account.
