Employment Process

What can you do as an applicant to maximize your opportunity for employment with Coconino County?
Fill out your application completely. 
Coconino County requires that a separate application be submitted for each position for which you are applying. 

Review the minimums, preferences and ideal candidate description of the open position. 
We review the candidate’s skills to ensure the person meets the minimum qualifications necessary to perform the duties of the position. We look for additional skills-specifically those mentioned as preferences or ideal candidate qualities; if you possess those skills and experience, list it clearly on the application. 

Be specific on your application. 
If the posting lists Microsoft Word as a preference and you have experience with Microsoft Word, do not write Microsoft Office. 

Your resume is not a legal document. 
Because your resume is not a legal document, we require that the application be completely filled out. You may elect to submit a resume with your application to further highlight your experience, but it should be a supporting document only. 

We use a Decision Matrix to determine who will move forward in the recruitment process to interviews. 
A Decision Matrix is an objective tool that weights preferences in order to score applications quantitatively. Each candidate who meets the minimum qualifications will be assigned points for each criteria they identify with the highest scoring applications moving forward through interviews and/or testing. 

Prepare for your interview. 
The interview process evaluates your ability to get along with others, work in a team environment and communicate effectively. Every position is different and, therefore, the questions we ask during interviewing will reflect what the hiring manager is seeking.
