Hiring Process Overview
Charles City County Government's application/selection process includes the following steps. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and the steps are subject to change.
- Step 1: Job is Announced
- Step 2: Application are Submitted
- Step 3: Applications are Reviewed
- Step 4: The Referred List is Created
- Step 5: Interviews
- Step 6: Offer of Employment
- Step 7: Background Checks
Working from the applications that have passed the first part of the review process (Step 3), HR creates a 'Referred List' of the top applications to go forward in the process.
The Referred List usually includes 10 to 15 applications. In some cases that number may be slightly higher or lower. This list typically includes 10 to 15 applicants, who are forwarded to the hiring manager for consideration.
Even if you meet the qualifications, you may not be referred because of the number and competitiveness of applications received. It's normal for applicant pools at Charles City County to include hundreds of well-qualified applicants, and only the top applicants will advance in the process.
If you are placed on the Referred List, the hiring department will notify you of the status of your application at this step. One of the following will occur: you will be selected for an interview, or the agency will notify you at the conclusion of the selection process (6-8 weeks) via email or letter that you have not been selected for an interview.
