Applicants looking for jobs with the City now have a new website that makes it easier to apply and search for jobs.

Tracy Lott, the City’s Human Resources Department director, said the new portal helps streamline the application process and keep users up-to-date like other governmental agencies.

“I am excited and elated at how this system will benefit the existing and future employees along with how much the entire process will be streamlined,” she said, adding moving to the NEOGOV system also helps expand the market for finding better candidates. “It makes it much simpler for users and staff … plus it expands the market for us never like before.”

The new applicant tracking system, NEOGOV, which is the nation’s largest provider of cloud-based recruiting and onboarding new hires and management software for more than 6000 public sector clients, launched on Tuesday, June 15, 2021.

Once an applicant creates a profile in the system, it can be used for other positions within the City of Aiken. The new system will allow for electronic submissions of resumes, transcripts, certificates, licenses, and other applicant-related materials. In addition, by simply creating an account, the self-service portal allows the applicant to view their status in the hiring process.
