    Here are some important points to remember when applying for positions at the State of Nebraska:

    • The employment application is required and is the primary source of information used to determine if you meet the minimum requirements of the job.
    • Please make sure your application is complete. Incomplete applications are rejected.
    • You have the opportunity to attach a resume, however it should not be used to replace any information asked for on the official application.
    • Please be complete. You will not be allowed to change your application after you have applied for a position and you cannot re-apply for the same position unless it is posted again.
    • When you have successfully applied for a job, you will receive an instant e-mail confirmation notice.


  • Helpful Hints for Our Application Process

    • The application is the critical point in the selection and hiring process and must be completed entirely.
    • When creating your application, keep in mind that the person reading it knows nothing about you and will not make any assumptions about what is stated.
    • Take the time to read the entire description of the job you want to apply for, especially the requirements.
    • Every application submitted is reviewed by the State Personnel Office to determine if it was completed entirely.  The next review is to determine if you meet the requirements as written on the job posting.
    • You will be notified by email if the application is incomplete, or if the minimum qualifications are not met.
    • Be sure to include your entire work history and each level of education attained.
    • Complete each field or section of the application, even if it is not a required field. Required fields are marked by an *.
    • Some positions include supplemental questions that are related to the job opening.  Provide honest and thorough answers.  What you say MUST be documented in the application itself.  Your application will be rejected if the information cannot be verified.
    • You may include your resume to supplement what is stated on your application.  Be aware that your qualification status is determined primarily on information stated on the application.
    • Allow yourself time to prepare your application and apply.  Avoid applying on the closing date.
    • Please allow between 3-5 weeks from the closing date for the hiring agency to determine who will be interviewed.  You will be notified by the agency if selected for an interview.
