To apply for an Oklahoma City government job, go to www.okc.gov/jobs. You can also call the city's job line at 297-2419 for information or visit the city's Personnel Department at 420 W Main St.
Job seekers can look for positions and begin the application process online, and follow the status of their application until the job has been filled.
“We've always wanted to offer online applications,” said Dianna Berry, the city's personnel director. “This eliminates people having to go downtown and pay for parking to apply. They can apply online any time, day or night, that the job is available.”
Oklahoma City is moving closer to a paperless application process, or at least as close to paperless as possible. The personnel department has to keep records on current employees dating to their first application, so going paperless converts a cumbersome physical storage operation to a digital one.
The city has a net gain of 85 jobs in the budget for the fiscal year that began this month, and is usually hiring across a broad spectrum of positions as part of normal turnover.
There should be listings for jobs in many city departments for the foreseeable future.
