Does the City of Westerville accept paper applications or resumes?
The City of Westerville does not accept paper applications or resumes. All job applications must be submitted electronically. Applicants are able to store and update an online application digitally for easy retrieval and unlimited submissions.
How do I know where my application is in the process?
When you submit your online application, you will receive an e-mail confirmation right away telling you that your application is in our hands. If your application is selected for skills testing or an interview, you will be notified by e-mail. You can also log into the website at any time and check the job posting to see where in the process we are in filling that particular vacancy.
Can I apply for more than one job at a time?
Yes. We encourage you to apply each and every time a job posting matches your career interests, education and minimum skill requirements.
What is an Internal Posting?
The City promotes from within and often gives its employees the opportunity to apply for job openings prior to making the posting public. In these cases, the job posting will indicate that this is an Internal Posting and only current employees may apply. If there is insufficient employee interest in an internal job posting, that job will be re-posted as an External Posting and then all who meet the minimum requirements are encouraged to apply.
How do I apply for a job with the City?
City job openings for full-time, regular part-time and seasonal positions are posted at this website, on bulletin boards in municipal buildings and in various local media. The best steps you can take toward gaining a job interview are:
