Remember to keep a record of your username and password once you have set up an account. You will need it to schedule for interviews and onboarding processes. 
What if I do not have a computer or access to the web?
All applications must be submitted online. Look into these resources: 
  • The public library is a great resource! Be prepared to sign up to use a computer and there may be a time limit. 
  • Family and friends may have internet access available for you to use! 
  • Contact HR if you need help applying.
What if I don't have an email address?
An email address is required! If you do not already have one, free email is available through a number of providers. Google's G-mail is a great option. NOTE: You can not share email addresses with anyone else. Each individual applicant must have a unique user ID, password and email address.
Can I apply by sending my resume via e-mail?
No, you must apply through our job postings portal and click the green "Apply" button. Please make sure you include all relevant education and experience history on your application, or you may be disqualified from the review process. 
What is the selection process?
The selection process and timelines will vary based on position. Application review is a blind process which means hiring managers will not have access to personally identifiable information until applicants are selected for interviews. 

The selection process may include tests and/or panel interviews. All candidates participating in an interview process will be notified via email of the outcome. All offers of employment are conditional upon successful completion of position specific pre-employment screenings. 
Can I apply for more than one job at a time?
Yes. Once you have completed your online application, you can apply for multiple positions that are currently open. 
Will I automatically be considered for other positions if I previously submitted an application?
No, you must submit a separate application for all positions you are interested in. Once you enter your basic information into NeoGov, it will auto save for a quicker application process in the future.  To ensure you will be considered for other positions watch the job postings portal for available openings.
How do I know if the City of Lake Forest has successfully received my online application?
After you have submitted your online application, you will receive an email confirmation. You can also check the status of your application by logging into NeoGov to see if it says 'Application Received.'
