Beginning in January 2013, the City of Cincinnati Human Resources and Enterprise Technology Solutions Department will launch a new software system to improve the hiring process for job seekers and the City's human resources representatives.
Interested job seekers will be able to apply for current vacancies or sign up for new openings via the City's website.
Instead of manually applying for multiple job openings, candidates will create a user profile to submit multiple applications at once electronically.
Using this technology, human resources and department managers can access online records to expedite hiring and provide greater accountability when selecting new employees.
"This is an exciting time for the City of Cincinnati as the Human Resources Department moves to provide customers with an employment opportunity model that is seamless, user-friendly, and creates greater efficiencies across our government," said Human Resources Director Georgetta Kelly.
The new system will allow hiring managers to quickly and strategically assess skill sets of talent pools utilizing an electronic sort mechanism. With the new system, administrative work and maintenance costs will be reduced as this workload will be handled by the NEOGOV system.
Several community forums will be held throughout the city to inform citizens and potential applicants of the impending changes.
The next forum will be held in conjunction with the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County for community members and workforce development professionals at a Jobseekers Workshop on December 3, 2012 at 7pm at the Main Library located at 800 Vine Street.
