Lexington to host online employment seminar on March 19

On March 19 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., city officials will be hosting an informational webinar on how to apply for a job with the City of Lexington.

The webinar is a partnership between the City of Lexington and the Goodwill of Northwest’s Career Connections Center.

The host of the event is Felicia King, Senior Human Resources Analyst at Lexington.

“We are no longer reviewing our process as a City of Lexington employee,” King said. “We have, in the fall, implemented an online process for people wanting to complete online applications, so this is more of a demonstration of how to use our [online] portal.”

The webinar comes weeks after Lexington commissioners discussed ways to diversify the city’s workforce.

The city’s staff diversity talks were part of discussions to hire a dedicated diversity and inclusion specialist to oversee the process of hiring more minority staff. While the next webinar is open to anyone interested in working for the City of Lexington, groups like the Davidson County NAACP Chapter are promoting it.

The Lexington Jobs Portal can be found under the City Services Administration tab on the city’s official page. According to King, individuals can find detailed instructions on how to apply, as well as a full list of available positions.

Currently, the city has three full-time and one part-time positions available.

King said the webinar was not the only way for the city to publicize its available jobs.

“We put all of our jobs on the website and we put them on,” King said, adding that individuals can sign up to receive emails whenever a particular department offers a position.
