Application Process

Application Submission

The City of Citrus Heights only accepts applications for open positions. You must submit a new application for each job you apply for.

Complete and submit an official city application, which can be found on the current openings resource. Fill out the application completely, and submit it by the final filing date and time, along with any supplemental materials required. Alternatively, you may apply online via

It is very important to include all requested information. Please list all paid work experience, licenses, professional affiliations, classes you have taken, training you have received, and any other special qualifications you possess that relate to the position for which you are applying. Failure to include requested information or an incomplete application may result in the rejection of your application.


Resumes are helpful, though not always required. Resumes are only accepted when attached to a thoroughly completed city application.

Supplemental Questionnaires

Some recruitments may also require a supplemental questionnaire. The questionnaires are evaluated as part of your application. It is important that your responses be thorough, professional, and well written.

Typing Certificate

Some recruitments require the submission of an official typing certificate. To obtain one, you can contact a local temporary agency. They will give you a typing test and issue a certificate with the words per minute you typed and the number of errors.

Criteria for Application Review

Human Resources will review your application using the criteria set forth on the job announcement.

The city reserves the right to select applicants for further consideration who demonstrate the best qualifications match for the job. Meeting the minimum qualifications does not guarantee an invitation to testing or interviews. Only the most qualified applicants may be invited to the next step of the selection process.
