Apply based on your County:

When applying for a job posting, it is important to apply to the county you live in for the following reasons:

  • By working in the County you live in you will have a better understanding of the need, concerns and resources in the community, which can help you to provide better service to the people you are supporting.
  • Working within the County you live in will ensure that you are able to meet the expectations of the position. For example, our Case Managers are responsible for billing roughly 75% of their worked time and, travel time, while it is worked and paid time, is not a billable activity. Therefore, traveling too far to support the people on your caseload will inhibit your ability to meet the expectations of the position.
  • You will be eligible for mileage reimbursement at the federal rate.

If your County is not listed in the job posting, it is best to apply to the closest County that is listed.
