After 10 years, the City’s online job application software has a new look.
Powered by HR software company NEOGOV, web page governmentjobs.com/careers/billingsmt lists current career opportunities with City of Billings.
“Our previous job application software was built internally by our IT Department in 2012. The online job application served its purpose for 10 years. Technology changed over time, and it became difficult to maintain our software with continuous changes required by web browsers. We researched what cities our size are using, and found that NEOGOV was widely used, and would provide applicants with a better user experience,” explained IT Manager Barb McRae.
Applicants can visit the website mentioned above, or go to the City’s website at BillingsMT.gov, and click on the “Employment” button listed in the carousel halfway down the page. They will be directed to the new job opportunities page.
“An applicant will have to establish a username and password. They will build their profile, which can be saved and used to apply for jobs. When they see a job they are interested in, they click “Apply Now.” NEOGOV seamlessly walks the applicant through the process,” said McRae.
The new software also gives applicants the ability to subscribe to job alert postings by clicking on “Menu” in the upper left-hand corner, then selecting “Email Job Alerts.” From there they can select the job categories that interest them and click on the “Subscribe” button. After filling out a job interest card with their name and email address, they will be among the first to know about new job listings.
