The City of Florence Moves to
New Technology for Job Applications
Job seekers can now easily apply with a new online system
Florence, Alabama – Mayor Haddock is pleased to announce that the City of Florence has launched a new software system to improve the hiring process for job seekers and hiring managers. Job seekers are able to quickly apply online for numerous positions currently open via the City’s HR webpage. Interested candidates can apply for current vacancies or sign up for new openings that become available.
The City of Florence has partnered with NEOGOV, the nation’s largest cloud software for HR in government and education. Using this technology, HR and department managers can access online records to expedite hiring and provide greater accountability when selecting new employees.
City HR Director, Alanna Sullivan, says the new software system will help potential applicants in reducing the time devoted to submitting applications for open positions. Applicants will have the advantage to store applications, resumes, cover letters, and other supporting documentation to their own secure personal account; therefore, allowing them to easily submit applications for multiple positions in which they may have an interest. Another unique feature is the “Interest Card.” By submitting an interest card, when the position in which you are interested posts at a future date, the system will automatically alert you by email. This helps to reduce the chance of candidates missing an online posting of a position.
The new system also allows hiring managers to more effectively create minimum qualifications to sort through a pool of applicants. With the new system, administrative work and technical maintenance costs are reduced as this workload is handled by the NEOGOV system.
The City of Florence now joins over 1,000 organizations across the nation which have moved into cutting edge online technology for personnel management.
