  • Applications must be filled out completely and clearly to show that the minimum qualifications are met; incomplete or illegible application packets may result in disqualification.
  • Resumes may be submitted, but cannot be accepted in lieu of an official application. Applications will be rejected if “SEE RESUME” is written on any portion of the “Previous Employment” section of the application.
