The City of Trenton has fully digitized its job applications as part of ongoing efforts to improve access to city services and minimize exposure to COVID-19. “With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and our desire to keep costs low, this is a pivotal administrative development that I guarantee will benefit both applicants and city officials in the long run,” said Mayor W. Reed Gusciora.
This service was made possible through the joint efforts of the City Administration and IT Departments, which are using SeamlessDocs to increase efficiency, cut paper waste and reduce storage needed for paper applications.
The digital employment portal also creates a contact-free convenience for those wishing to apply, with an active email address being the only requirement for completion. While not mandatory, resume and cover letter attachments are strongly recommended and encouraged. Interested applicants can access the form by visiting TrentonNJ.org/Apply.
“Trenton’s IT Department is committed to making sure all city documents are as user friendly and cost effective as possible,” said Joseph Rivera, Chief Technology Officer. “At this moment we’re working to digitize several other documents across all departments, including Health Department forms, TPD citizen complaint forms, Water Works forms, and recreation permits.”
