Employment Application Tips

Tips for Applying


  • Visit the Job Opportunities page to view all available job postings with Jackson County.
  • Applications and resumes are accepted for open positions only.
  • Print an application and complete it in full. Be sure to list the position you are applying for. Because background checks are conducted, a fully completed application may help prevent employment delays in the event that you are offered a job.
  • List professional references not previously mentioned in the "Employment Experience" section of the application.
  • Read and sign the applicant certification on the last page of the application.
  • Applicants will not be contacted for an interview until after the job posting deadline.
  • Applications are screened for minimum qualifications and experience. However, meeting the minimum qualifications is not a guarantee of an interview.
  • Due to the volume of applications received, not all applicants will be contacted.
  • Job offers are contingent upon satisfactory post-offer drug screening results and a background check. Employment offers may be withdrawn if unsatisfactory results are received.
  • All employees are required to provide proof of identity and authorization of employability.
  • Jackson County is an equal opportunity employer. We consider applications for all positions without regard to race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, citizenship status or any other legally protected status.
