Pursuant to the City of Pompano Beach’s Strategic Plan initiative of creating additional e-government services, candidates interested in employment with the City will be able to apply online using a new software system designed to improve the hiring process. The City has partnered with NEOGOV, the nation’s largest cloud software for HR in government and education. NEOGOV has over 1,000 clients nationwide.
The NEOGOV system is a secure site and will allow job applicants to create a user account/profile, apply for current job opportunities and check the status of their candidacy all online. The system will also store candidate’s employment information so they will not have to complete a whole new application each time they apply. Candidates will be able to complete job interest cards online and will be notified if a position they indicate they would be interested in becomes available. Please note that the City of Pompano Beach will no longer accept paper applications or resumes. Candidates will be required to create an account using NEOGOV (also known as governementjobs.com).
If this is your first time applying for a job using the NEOGOV online job application system, you will need to create an account and select a Username and Password. The account setup requires that you provide a valid email address. Your email address will be used to provide you with important information and communications through the selection process. If you do not have an email address, you can easily create one for free at Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, or any other email provider of your choosing (the City does not endorse any particular email provider).
It is important to note that NEOGOV user accounts are only to be used by one person. Do not share your account with another person and do not use another person’s email address to sign up.
If you do not have access to a computer, you may go to any public library, visit the City’s Human Resources Department, or ask friends or relatives for help. Application assistance will be provided at the City’s Human Resources Department Monday – Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm at 100 W. Atlantic Blvd, Pompano Beach, FL 33060. Neighboring public libraries can be found here.
To create an account, click here. Then click “Create an account.” Enter your email address, Username, Password, Confirm Password, answer the security question and then click “Create”. (Your Username must be unique and your Password must be at least 8 characters in length and contain upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.) You will see your Username in the upper right-hand corner. Click your Username, and then click “Profile”. Follow the prompts and instructions to complete the sections of Info, Work, Education, Additional, and References. Once you have created your profile, sign out and return to the City of Pompano Beach’s job opportunities page. Be sure to save your information frequently. If you have been in the system for more than an hour without saving your entries, you will be automatically logged out as a security measure and your information will be lost.
If you have already created a governmentjobs.com or NEOGOV account with another agency, you do not have to create a new account with us. The Username, Password, and saved Profile will work with our new system.
All current Job Opportunities are listed online. Click on the job title you are interested in, and then click on the "Apply" link. Some positions require a job specific supplemental questionnaire. If the job bulletin states that a job specific supplemental questionnaire is required, the questions will appear near the end of the online application process. You must submit an online application in order to be considered for each job opening. You will have an opportunity to copy and paste your resume into the application; however, resumes alone are not accepted. If you are uploading your resume, please also copy and paste the information into the fields provided by NEOGOV. Simply typing “see resume” is not acceptable. Please remember to logout of the system before you leave this site.
NOTE: If you forget your password or username when prompted to apply, you must click the "I Forgot My Username and/or Password" link in order to retrieve this information. If your e-mail is no longer valid, you will need to create a new account using a valid e-mail address in order to submit an application. If you require technical assistance, you may call NEOGOV phone support toll free at (855) 524-5627 between the hours of 9 a.m.- 9 p.m. EST, Monday - Friday, to retrieve this information.
Online applications should be filled out completely and should clearly show that the minimum qualifications are met. Do not leave an item blank. Incomplete applications will not be considered. All statements made on the application are subject to verification. Exaggerated, false, or misleading statements may be cause for rejection of the application and/or termination of employment. Eligibility for hire may be based on a rating of the application; therefore, completeness and accuracy are of the utmost importance.
Online applications are stored on a secure site. Only authorized employees and hiring authorities have access to the information submitted.
The application takes approximately 30 – 45 minutes to complete and must be completed and submitted by 11:59 pm on the closing date.
You can check the status of you application online by accessing your account and then by clicking your Username and then “Applications & Status”.
