How to Apply to the Water Authority FAQ
Thank you for considering us as one of your employers of choice. The Water Authority invites you you to explore the various career fields and opportunities that may be available currently or in the future. The Water Authority is an Equal Opportunity/Reasonable Accommodation Employer.
Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions on the Application Process.
All applications must be submitted online at http://agency.governmentjobs.com/sdcwa/default.cfm. Select the Applicant Login link for access and instructions.
If supplemental information or other materials are required as part of an application, it will be indicated on the job posting. The supplemental materials are necessary for further evaluation of your qualifications for the position for which you are applying. You must submit all supplemental information at the same time you submit your application.
I want to apply for more than one position. Do I need to fill out a separate application for each position?
Yes. Every application is evaluated separately based on the position for which you are applying. However, once you create an account, you may build an application and submit that application for multiple jobs by clicking on the ‘Populate’ button to automatically populate the new application with information from those that you previously created. Once your account is created, applying for open recruitments is quick and easy.
When your application is received, a confirmation email will be sent.
You must contact the Water Authority's Human Resources Department at 858.522.6664 to request updates to already submitted applications.
You can review the status at any time by clicking on Applicant Login, using the user name and password that you created when you submitted your application.
All information is maintained on a secure web server. Only the Human Resources Department and other Water Authority staff authorized to review specific information related to job openings will have access.
You will be asked to provide information consistent with any standard application process such as name, address, phone number, education, employment history, etc.
A computer will be available in our Human Resources Department, during the hours of 8 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Friday (every other Friday the Water Authority offices are closed). We are located at 4677 Overland Avenue San Diego, CA. 92123.
To apply online you must have an email account. There are a number of free email services available to the general public. For example, www.aol.com, www.yahoo.com, or www.google.com.User accounts are established for one person only and should not be shared with another person or email address. Multiple applications with multiple users and email addresses may jeopardize your status in the recruitment process for any positions you apply for.
You may either attach or cut and paste a resume into your application. Please note that submitting a resume does not substitute for completing the entire application.
You may submit a Job Interest Card online. To submit a Job Interest Card online, follow the Job Interest Card instructions.
No, it is necessary to submit a new application for every job posting.
As with any position, once a closing date has passed, no application will be accepted or considered. You may want to complete a job interest card to automatically be notified when a position you are interested in becomes available.

Also, check the email address on your account to make sure it's accurate and current. If you are still experiencing difficulty please call the Water Authority Human Resources Department at (858) 522-6664.
All applicants are assessed relative to the qualifications listed on the job posting. Applicant information will be reviewed by the Human Resources Department and the hiring manager. Applicants must meet the minimum qualifications of the posting to be eligible for further consideration. However, meeting the minimum qualifications does not automatically guarantee an interview.
If you are called for an interview by a department, there are some things you should do. Remain calm, be prompt and dress appropriately. You may also want to review the job announcement to prepare yourself for the interview. Remember, the interview is the time to show the hiring department that you are the best person for the job!
