Yes. Resumes are not accepted during the application process, but may be taken to an interview. Therefore, your application needs to be complete and should include all qualifying information.
When you sign your application form, you sign an affirmation which indicates that the information you provide is true and complete. This affirmation is signed under penalties of perjury. If you are not certain of the appropriate response to an item on the application form, please look into the matter and make sure your response is correct. Providing incorrect information may result in the disapproval of your application, disqualification from taking an examination, and/or removal from office if discovered after appointment.
All misdemeanor and felony criminal convictions must be disclosed on your application. This includes convictions that occurred a long time prior to the application. A separate Sworn Statement form must be completed for each conviction. This information is reviewed in accordance with law to determine whether the conviction(s) disqualify the individual from prospective employment. While most convictions are not disqualifying, all must be reviewed to determine whether they adversely affect an applicant’s fitness for appointment. It is important that the information provided be accurate and complete.
