  • You may sign later for email submission.

  • Please type or print in black ink.

  • Be careful to note any education, certificates, licenses, training, or specific experience required for individual positions.

  • Applications should normally be tailored to each specific job posting so that the applicant can emphasize work experience most relevant to that position.

  • The information included in the employment history section of the application will be the official record of your employment experience. It must accurately reflect all significant duties performed.

  • Screening for work experience is based on the information listed in the employment history section.

  • Applicants must demonstrate in the application how they meet the minimum education and experience requirements as stated in the job posting. No assumptions will be made.

  • Be specific and detailed when providing information in the employment history section.

  • Failure to list specific examples of work duties in all areas of qualifications, knowledge, skills, and abilities listed in the job posting may result in the applicant being considered unqualified and not being granted an interview.

  • Résumés are not accepted in place of applications.

  • Begin with your current or last position and work back to your first.

  • Summaries of experience should clearly describe your work experience/duties that meet each qualification listed in the job posting.

  • Give a brief summary of the technical and managerial responsibilities (if applicable) of each position you have held.

  • If you need additional space to adequately describe your employment history, you may use an employment history continuation sheet or attach a typed employment history providing the same information in the same format as the application form.

  • Copies of college transcripts, certifications, and/or licenses must be attached to the application, if specified in the job posting.

  • Applications which do not include all required attachments will not be considered.

  • Look carefully at the closing date in the job posting. Make sure the application and all necessary attachments arrive at the appropriate agency by the closing date to ensure consideration.

  • State of Texas vacancies are listed with the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). Also, state agencies have employment information available at various office locations.

  • Look for us online. Many state agencies list job postings online. For a listing of state job postings, see www.workintexas.com.

If assistance is needed, please contact the Human Resources office at each state agency (or the contact listed in the job posting) as soon in the employment process as possible so that appropriate measures can be taken to meet your needs.
