Yes. Our online application tool allows you to apply for multiple job openings in a day, but you must apply for each position separately. You can also attach different resumes for each unique position that you apply for. The City of Calgary encourages applicants to tailor their resume and cover letter to be specific to the job opening.
How do I update or delete my resume that I have already submitted?
Once your application is submitted, your resume and answers to the questions cannot be changed or updated. Your application is complete when you click submit. This is a feature to protect your information.
To update the information that is shown in My Job Profile, click on the myInformation tab, and then the Update Personal Information link and change the information as required. You can also submit a request to HR for any updates you wish to make.
The City of Calgary does not accept general applications. All applications need to be associated with a specific posting.
If you are interested in receiving automatic email notifications for specific positions, you can set up a Job Search Agent under the myCareer tab. In the Basic Job Search box, click the Advanced Search hyperlink. It is best to use key words to be notified of new positions of interest to you. To save the search and receive emails, click Save Search at the bottom of the page. It’s that easy – you will be notified of any positions matching your criteria for the next 90 days.
Most competitions are filled within six to eight weeks of the closing date. Once a job opening has been closed, applicants with a valid email address will receive an email notifying them they are no longer being considered for that position.
Only applicants being considered for an interview will be contacted. If you have not heard from The City within eight weeks of the closing date it is likely that you are not being considered for the position. Once a job opening has been closed, your status will be updated on the myCareer Tools page, under the myCareer tab. Applicants with a valid email address will also receive an email notifying them they are no longer being considered for that position. Don’t give up though; we open more than 40 new jobs each week! Please continue to visit myHRconnect for other job opportunities.
All applicants are assessed relative to the qualifications listed on the job posting. You must meet the minimum qualifications of the posting to be eligible for further consideration. However, meeting the minimum qualifications does not automatically mean you will be interviewed. Each position is screened by different hiring supervisors, so you should continue to apply for different positions.
