Individuals will no longer be able to apply for positions that are not vacant or posted. Only applications and resumes that identify specific vacant/posted positions will be accepted. In 2004, Human Resources received more than 3,000 applications. Nearly 1,000 of the applications were not tied to a vacancy.
Internal paperwork processes have also been improved. The new process will save taxpayers $4,000 each year and reduce 149 staff hours per year.
