If a recruitment is limited to a specific number of applications, can I apply once this limit has been reached?
Unfortunately, if your application was submitted after the specified limit advertised on our job announcement and website was reached, we will not be accepted. 
I am not a City employee, can I apply to promotional/transfer openings?

In order to apply for an internal opportunity/promotional opportunity, you must be a current City of Las Vegas employee who has achieved regular status (i.e. full/part-time classified employee who has completed probationary period or full-time appointive employee who achieved regular status as a classified employee).

I am a veteran. Will I receive veteran’s preference points?

Yes, veteran’s preference points are awarded on open examinations at time of initial hire after a final passing score of 70% or higher has been attained. Five points will be added to the veteran’s finals score, not to exceed 100%. For purposes of veteran’s preference, a “veteran” refers to a person who has served on active duty in the armed forces of the United States, and who is able to establish that they have been discharged under an honorable or general discharge. The DD-214 must have the “character of service” to establish the above. For candidates who have a service-related disability or are the recipient of a purple heart, 10 preference points will be awarded as outlined above (not to exceed 10 total points.) To receive the 10 points, candidates must provide Standard Form SF-15 along with their DD-214.
