Dear Applicant,

Welcome to San Juan County’s application process!  It is our hope you find the procedure to be easily accessible.  The content and thoroughness of the employment application is considered an important part of the recruitment process.  Whether or not you proceed through the process may be dependent upon the quality of the application itself.

A separate application must be completed for each position for which you are applying.  Your application can be saved, and used to apply for more than one job opening, or for future job openings.  Online applications are stored on a secure site, and only authorized employees and hiring authorities have access to the information submitted.

San Juan County conducts a background criminal check and driving history check for all candidates recommended for hire.  Individuals who have been convicted of a DUI/DWI within the last three years are ineligible for hire.  The results of criminal history checks may disqualify a candidate from further consideration.
