FAQs

How do I find out what jobs are open?

We post detailed job announcements online at www.pbcgov.jobs; our 24-hour Job Hotline phone number is (561) 616 - 6900, TDD (561) 616 - 6895; local government Channel 20 runs our announcements as part of its regular programming; we post job openings in the PBC BCC Human Resources Department Lobby as well.

How do I apply for open positions?

You may apply online via our job listings at www.pbcgov.jobs; mail must be received in our office by the same deadline; we do not accept e-mailed apps/resumes.

If I've already turned in my application/resume, can I add something to it?

You may add to or amend your application prior to 5:00 p.m. on the closing date.

I'm interested in applying for more than one position. Do I have to fill out more than one app?

When you apply online, you will be given the opportunity to copy your completed app to other open jobs - without having to enter your information again! You may revise your information as well. If you apply using a paper app, you must submit a separate app for each position desired.

Locally, what are your business office hours?

We are open weekdays, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. ET, excluding holidays. We do not close for lunch.

How do I find out my application status?

You will be notified ONLY if you are invited to interview with the hiring department. Approximately 4 weeks after the closing date of a job posting, you may call (561) 616 - 6888 to talk to the HR Staff Specialist who screened the apps received for the job. The Specialist can give you more specific information regarding your app status.

How do I sign up for written or typing tests that are advertised as part of the job requirements?

Our office will contact you to schedule a test appointment if you meet the minimum qualifications advertised.
