How do I apply online for a job with the City of Orange?
Everything is done through our website. There you will find links to job opportunities, and will be able to create an account and apply for jobs.

How do I check the status of my application?
Check your email for status notices.  If you are no longer being considered for a position, a notice will be sent to the email address you used on your application. If you are selected for an interview or an offer of employment, you will be contacted via phone, email, or the USPS mail.
