          Selection Procedure

          The City of Renton is dedicated to building an inclusive, informed city, with opportunities for all. In alignment with that goal, the City has adopted an anonymous application process that prevents hiring managers from seeing personal identifiers, including names, addresses, and
          other similar information. This eliminates the possibility of unintentional or implicit bias during the initial screening of applications. For that reason, you will not have the ability to attach any documents to your application, including a cover letter or resume. Please make sure to submit a complete, detailed, and updated job application.

          Communication from the City of Renton:
          We primarily communicate via e-mail during the recruitment process. E-mails from and/or should be placed on your safe domain list to ensure you receive notifications in a timely manner. As a precaution, you may also want to check your junk e-mail folders.
