Application FAQs


We encourage you to apply to a job posting that meets your skills, education and professional experience.  Once you create your candidate profile on our online portal, it is easy to apply for multiple postings.

We are unable to accept general resumes. The best way to be considered for a job posting is by submitting your application online for a posted position that meets your qualifications and experience.

The City provides a seamless online applications for you, using a system called Taleo. To get started, you'll need to create a Taleo profile which will enable you to save your resume, apply for job postings, and set up notifications. If you're new to the system or facing any challenges applying for postings, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at 311 (If you're outside Lethbridge, dial 403-320-3111) and we'll be more than happy to help you out.

If the next time you apply for a job posting you want to add an updated resume or cover letter, you have to upload them in the "attach resume" and "upload additional attachments" sections of your candidate profile.

We updated job postings on a regular basis – please check back often!  You can also set up a “job alert” online so that specific types of postings are automatically e-mailed to you.

Our seasonal opportunities are posted year-round. Please note that our spring hiring for outdoor positions usually begins in early March.

If you are selected for an interview, you will receive a call or e-mail from a People & Culture Representative or the hiring manager.

We include a contact person on each job posting. You can call them and ask any questions you would like about the content of the posting and the job details.

If you have a question about the application process, please call 311, 403-320-3111 if outside of Lethbridge. 


We do not accept applications once the job posting closes. If you have questions about postings that have closed, please contact People & Culture.

Revised answer. Providing a seamless application process for you, The City uses an online system called Taleo to help with talent acquisition and recruiting. Taleo is a cloud-based talent management software vendor. Taleo only stores aggregate data (this includes your first and last name and email address). You can delete your candidate profile whenever you see fit.

Candidates whose qualifications and experience meet the job requirements may be contacted for an interview. Only candidates being considered for the job posting will be contacted.

The interview will be an opportunity for the candidate to learn more about the position and for the interviewers to learn more about the candidate's skills, experiences and past performance.

Some positions will have additional requirements that will be listed on the job posting. This may include things like references, providing a driver's abstract or completing a Police Information Check (PIC).  On average, once a posting has closed, the recruitment process takes about 4 – 6 weeks.
