Applications received by applicants who do not meet the definition of applicant will not be considered. If the applicant is selected for testing or for an interview, they will be contacted by text, email, and/or phone. Often an applicant will only be aware whether or not they have been selected for an interview after the job posting has ended.
LNVA will advertise positions when they become open.
Visit our web page www.LNVA.dst.tx.us. All employment announcements will list the level of education and/or experience required for the position under the section titled “Minimum Qualifications”. Experience, education, training, skills and other abilities as well as specific position requirements and the prior employment history of the applicant will be considered in appraising individuals qualifications. Applicants’ qualifications will be based upon the information presented in the application. Testing for certain positions may also be required, and this information will be used as part of the qualification process.
We do not accept unsolicited resumes. Additionally, applications are only accepted for positions that are currently posted.
Here are some of the common reasons for rejections. (These reasons do not represent all of the reasons that applicants are not selected for interviews.)
- Application does not clearly show you have the necessary experience/training as stated on the job announcement.
- Application does not show you have the minimum amount of education required.
- Application is incomplete.
- Application is not signed.
- Application is received after deadline date/time.
You will be considered to be an “Applicant” only if you properly complete the application for employment, designate a particular position that is open (or may come open within 90 days,) and your background and qualifications meet Lower Neches Valley Authority’s requirements for such position.
No documents are required for applying for a position unless otherwise stated in the job announcement. You will need to fully complete the employment application, which includes employment history, education and training, special skills, references, and various information related to employment eligibility.
If you are selected for testing or an interview, copies of required certifications, registrations and/or licenses must be provided at that time. Additionally, college transcripts are required prior the interview, if you want your post secondary courses/degrees to be considered in the selection process.
If not chosen for the position you apply for, your properly completed application will remain in effect for ninety days for the position for which you applied and if your background and qualifications meet Lower Neches Valley Authority’s requirements for that position. We do not “reactivate” applications. If you wish to apply for another position, you must fill out a new application.
