How to Apply

The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System is a part of Fulton County government and abides by Fulton County personnel and hiring regulations. Full-time and part-time womanemployees are hired through the Library after being certified as being eligible for the classification for which they applied. The list of applicants who have been certified as eligible for a job classification is called the Certificate of Eligibles.

To be considered for a position your name must be placed on the Certificate of Eligibles for that job classification. You must do the following:

Complete the Fulton County Application for Employment. Fulton County will evaluate the application in light of the qualifications of the position for which you are applying. Once it has been determined that you are eligible, your name is placed on the list.


Important! Be sure that you put all pertinent information on the application to document your qualifications. Act as if a resume is an addendum, so that should it get separated or lost from the application an accurate evaluation of your qualifications may still be made based on the information on your application.

Once your name is on the Certificate of Eligibles and a vacancy occurs in that classification, the Library requests the listing and sets up interviews with the applicants. Once the interviews are completed and a decision is made, direct contact is made with the candidate again, and an offer is made.
