Show All Answers
I want to apply for a job with the City. Is there an application deadline?
Yes, each job posting has a closing date listed on the position description. All applications must be received by 4:00pm on the posted close date unless otherwise specified. Once a position closes, it will be removed from the website and applications will no longer be accepted.
I missed the deadline. Can I still apply?
No. Once a closing date for a position has passed, no applications will be accepted or considered. Please continue to check the Job Opportunities section of the website, or sign up under "Notify Me" to be alerted when a new job has been posted.
How can I get an application?
Each job posting on the website has an employment application attached. You can print the application from your computer, or stop in to the Human Resources office to pick up a copy.
Do I need to live in the City of Northfield to work there?
No, you do not need to be a resident of Northfield to work for the City.
How do I know if I qualify for a position?
The minimum qualifications and supplemental questions are listed in the job posting. Your application will be reviewed, along with any other materials required on the job posting, to determine whether you meet these qualifications. Your education and experience, licenses, certificates, and special skills will be reviewed. If all the information is not provided, you may be considered unqualified or less qualified than other applicants.
How will I be contacted regarding the status of the position I applied for?
You will be contacted by the Human Resources Department. If you are selected for an interview, Human Resources staff will call you. If not, you will be notified in writing. Be sure to check the email address you provided with your application, as notifications could come via USPS or email.
Do I have to submit a separate application for each posting?
Yes. Applications are accepted for each individual job posting. If you are applying for two positions at the same time, an application for each position must be submitted.
I applied for a job with the City last month. Can you just use the application I submitted then?
Yes. The City keeps applications on file for one year. You must contact Human Resources to have your application resubmitted for the desired opportunity.
I don't see a job opening, but I would like to submit my resume so that I may be considered for a future opening.
The City does not keep resumes on file to use for future use. To be considered for a position, you must complete a city application for the specified job. If you would like to attach your resume to the application to give us more background on yourself, that is acceptable.
What if I need an accommodation to apply for or perform a job?
Please contact Human Resources to make arrangements for accommodations.
