How to Apply for a City Position


    The City of Selma welcomes applications for openings in any position.  For most positions, the City only accepts applications during an open enrollment or when a vacancy exists. However, for certain safety positions in police and fire services (see Job Opportunities page) you may submit an application at any time.  To make the application process easier to understand, please review the following:


    You must submit a City of Selma Employment Application Form and any required supplemental documents to be considered in the recruitment process.


    When completing the employment application, be as thorough as possible when listing experience, education and training needed to qualify for the testing process. Precise dates of employment are necessary for determining whether your experience is actually qualifying. Be sure to include number of hours worked at each prior position and whether each job was

full-time or part-time.


    If a California Driver's License is required for your position, be sure you include the information under the appropriate section.  You must sign and date the application form prior to submittal. 


Important information regarding the application process:

  • Equal Employment Opportunity.  The City of Selma is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, medical condition, marital status, sexual preference, veteran status, family care status, gender or pregnancy.  All personnel decisions and selection methods are based upon job-related qualifications and successful job performance.

  • Disability Accommodations.  If you have a disability that requires accommodation during the selection process, please notify Human Resources at least 48 hours prior to that phase of the process for which you are requesting an accommodation.

  • Changes in address or telephone numbers.  If your contact information changes after you have submitted your application form, be sure to notify Human Resources as soon as possible.

  • Resume.  A resume may be required for some positions, however a resume will not be accepted as a substitute for a City of Selma application form.  Please do not write "see attached resume" instead of completing the application form as this may lead to a rejection of your employment application.

  • Cover Letter.  You are welcome to submit a cover letter with your employment application form but it is not necessary for any City position.

  • Supplemental Questionnaire.    If a supplemental questionnaire is required, you must complete and submit it with your application form.  The job flyer will clearly indicate if such a questionnaire is necessary.

  • Late applications will not be accepted.  Please pay careful attention to the deadline date and make sure your application form reaches City Hall by that time. If you are using a mailing service, you should make sure the delivery is guaranteed by the filing deadline.
