Application Process

Printer-friendly version of process

The Library accepts applications for available positions only.  An individual must complete an official Spartanburg County Public Library Application Form in order to be considered an applicant for employment. 

NOTE:  A resume CANNOT be used as a substitute for an employment form or work history but may be attached as additional information.

Applicants who do not meet the availability and minimum education and experience requirements indicated in the job posting or do not have the ability to perform the essential functions for the position, with or without accommodation, will not be considered for employment.

Applications are evaluated by the supervisors and the Human Resource Manager after the date listed on the job posting.  A few candidates are selected and contacted for an interview.
We unfortunately cannot contact and interview everyone who applies. If you have not heard from us within thirty days you may assume that the position has been offered to a candidate whose qualifications were best suited for the position.
