The City of El Monte recently launched a new software system to improve the hiring process for job seekers and personnel managers. Starting this month, job seekers will be able to quickly apply online to numerous positions currently open via the City’s website www.ci.el-monte.ca.us. Interested candidates can apply for current vacancies or sign up for new openings that become available online.
“We are committed to finding innovative ways to use technology to better our city processes,” said Mayor Andre Quintero. “The move to online job applications is a step in the right direction to make our City more effective and efficient.”
This new software streamlines the job search and application process for job seekers. Instead of applying for multiple job openings at once, candidates can submit multiple applications all electronically.
The City will only accept electronic applications; paper applications will no longer be accepted. The application can be accessed from any computer with internet access.
The new system also allows hiring managers to more effectively create minimum qualifications to sort through a pool of applicants. With the new system, administrative work and technical maintenance costs are reduced as this workload is handled by the NEOGOV system.
For this initiative, El Monte has partnered with NEOGOV, the nation’s largest cloud software for HR in government and education. Using this technology, HR and department managers can access online records to expedite the hiring process and provide greater accountability when selecting new employees.
