The City of Salem will be moving to a new applicant tracking system, GovernmentJobs.com, powered by NEOGOV, on May 29, 2015. From May 8 through May 28, 2015, applicants will no longer be able to use our current site to view job announcements, submit applications or check application status. We will notify applicants of their status by e-mail, as we move through the hiring process for jobs advertised prior to May 8.
The Governmentjobs.com applicant tracking system is used by other government agencies, so if you already have a GovernmentJobs account, there is no need to create a new one for City of Salem jobs. If you do not already have a GovernmentJobs account, you can follow this link to set up a new account: https://www.governmentjobs.com/ .
1. From the home page, you can click the “Sign In” link in the upper, right-hand corner of the page.
2. Next, click the “Create an Account” link and follow the instructions.
3. You do not need to set up an account until you are ready to apply for a job, but it may be done ahead of time, if you choose to do so.
You will not be able to see any City of Salem jobs, or submit applications to the City until May 29, but you can create a basic application and save it for future job openings. Once you have created your application, you may immediately begin applying for job opportunities with other agencies that use Governmentjobs.com as their applicant tracking system.
We are looking forward to the enhanced application tracking options that GovernmentJobs.com offers us. The City of Salem is confident that the applicant services provided by GovernmentJobs will be beneficial to you as well. Thank you for your patience during the transition process.
