Employment Opportunities

You must submit an application, resume, and any related license and certification copies by the final filing deadline 

If you are interested in applying for a position, you must complete a City application and cover letter online. Inquiries may be directed to hr@cityofmarina.org.

Selection Procedures

A job-related comprehensive application evaluation will first consist of a review of applications. A resume does not substitute for a completed application. A screening committee will be convened to review the application materials of the most suitably qualified applicants.

The committee will select the best qualified applicants to continue on in the selection process which may include a written and/or performance exam and/or an oral interview panel. Faxes or resumes alone will not be accepted in lieu of an original and official City of Marina application.

Possession of the minimum qualifications does not guarantee advancement in the selection process or placement on the eligible list. Prior to an employment offer being made, a thorough reference check will be done. At the time employment is offered, applicants are required to successfully pass a medical examination and must be able to furnish proof of legal right to work within the United States.
