All applications are screened by subject matter experts. The most qualified candidates may then be invited for further testing.
It is important that your application, not just your resume, show all the relevant experience and education you possess.
Please read the job requirements section of the announcement. Be sure you meet these requirements since they will be carefully evaluated during the selection process. Your performance in this examination will be compared with the performance of others who take the test. All candidates who pass will be ranked according to their scores. The examination results will be emailed to you as quickly as possible. Scores will be provided in writing only.
Yay! You’ve made it down to the fine print…. that means you are interested in this job, and THAT makes us happy! The lawyers tell us we need to include this stuff…. but we’ll help you get through it.
This is about the retirement benefits we offer. You’ve probably heard that we have a great retirement plan. Basically, you fall into a Tier based on the date you first start working for the County or any other governmental employer that uses CalPERS for retirement. If this is your first job in government, then you’ll be in Tier III. 2.0 means that for every year you work for the County, you will receive 2% of your final annual pay rate for every year that you work for us if you work the required minimum number of years (that’s called vesting) and retire after the age following the @. So, if you work 20 years and retire at 64 years of age, you will receive 20 x 2% or 40% of your final annual pay rate every year in retirement.
CalPERS Retirement Program
The County participates in the CalPERS retirement system, with both the County and the employee making contributions toward the employee’s retirement.

Tier I: Prior to 7/5/2012: 2.7 @ 55
Tier II: Post 7/6/2012: 2.0 @ 55
Tier III: Post 1/1/2013: 2.0 @ 62

This next section says that the County runs its hiring on a set of rules to ensure that it is fair. Hiring and promotion are based on performance and having the best qualifications for the job. “Examination” doesn’t always mean taking a test…..sometimes it just means how we compare your application to others who have applied and an “oral examination” can just mean an interview for lower level positions.

Jobs are filled through competitive examinations. A complete online application is required for this position. All application materials will be reviewed by a panel of subject matter experts.
