Currently, most jobs are available to apply online. Applicants can also call the Human Resources Department for assistance at 318-673-5150.

Job Postings & Application Process

The Human Resources Department posts current notices of job opportunities at the Human Resources Department Office and are published on its online application website. Job applications may be filed only when an examination is announced.

It is important that you include your entire employment history, including periods of unemployment on your application, plus any relevant education and experience. Applications may be rejected if incomplete. Some job postings have an application deadline; others are open on a continuous basis until a sufficient number of applications have been received.

Applicants who are interested in jobs that are currently open for application may request email notification of an announcement through the online application website or may complete a job interest card which may be filed with the Personnel Office at any time.

Delay in the Mail

The Human Resources Department cannot accept responsibility for failure of the Human Resources Department to receive material mailed by the applicant.
