City of Missoula Switches to New Online Job Application Technology | ABC Fox Missoula

City of Missoula press release:

The City of Missoula is launching a new applicant tracking system to improve the hiring process for job seekers and the human resources department. Applicants will see the new software in action starting Monday, June 13 on the City’s website.

The City of Missoula joins more than 6,000 public sector agencies that have transitioned to cutting-edge cloud technology for talent management by partnering with NEOGOV, a market and technology leader in public sector human resource software.

“This is an exciting time for the City of Missoula as the Department of Human Resources moves to provide applicants with an application model that is transparent, user-friendly, and creates greater efficiency across our government,” said said Angela Simonson, director of human resources.

NEOGOV’s HR software automates the hiring and onboarding process for the City. The candidate experience is also improving, as interested job seekers will now see a streamlined process. Candidates will be able to create a user profile to submit applications electronically instead of manually applying for multiple job openings.

“Using NEOGOV will advance the City of Missoula’s strategic plan, generating a diverse candidate pool in support of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion goals through outreach and supply,” Simonson said. “Recruiting has changed significantly during the pandemic, and quality software has become essential to make the most of available resources.”

NEOGOV allows candidates to apply for current vacancies or sign up to receive email notifications for future positions. Using this technology accelerates time to hire by centralizing the process to attract candidates, screen them, and land a qualified hire while ensuring recruitment compliance. The new system will allow hiring managers to quickly and strategically assess talent pool skill sets.
