Our application is designed to obtain relevant information about an applicant's skills, knowledge and abilities as they relate to specific job requirements. Individuals must submit an application form for each position at the circulation desk at any of our libraries. Additional information is welcome in the form of resumes or other attachments.
After the closing date on the position announcement, all applications submitted by the closing deadline are screened to determine the most qualified candidates. These candidates will be contacted for an interview. Due to the large number of applications normally received, it is not possible to interview every qualified applicant. We understand that it can be frustrating for those who do not receive an interview. However, each applicant has the opportunity to submit all appropriate written information with the application.
Interviews with the Library Director are scheduled to give selected applicants the opportunity to personally present their abilities and experience.
Those applicants who apply for a specific, open position will be informed by mail or by phone call after a selection has been made. Applicants are welcome to call to inquire on the status of any open position.
Applicants who would like assistance in seeking employment may want to use the resources of the Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Library System. The Main Library and branches have information on job search strategies, resume preparation and interview techniques. A great deal of background information on local and national employers is also available.
