You may search for positions of interest, using the keyword box.  You may also choose to enter any one of our employment links via the links on the right-hand side of the page.  Job searches can be performed without making an account.  You will be prompted to login/create an account, however, once you click “Apply to job”.

How do I create an account?

From the FCPS Job Opportunities page, simply click on any job ID number, then click apply to job.  You will then have the option to create an account.  Alternatively, you can click on any of the employment links, then underneath where it says, “New User?”, you can click the hyperlink directly below, in order to make a new account.

I’m locked out of my account. What can I do?

Three incorrect attempts at accessing your account will trigger a temporary lock on your account.  Wait about 10 minutes for this security feature to reset, then try again.  Unfortunately, we at FCPS cannot unlock your account.

How do I add or delete a resume?

Once logged into your CareerQuest account, click “Resume/CV manager”.  Next to each resume or cover letter, there is a small icon in the shape of a trash can.  Simply click the trash can icon next to each resume you wish to discard and follow the prompts.  If you already have five versions (maximum number) of resumes on your profile, you will need to delete at least one before a new one can be added.

I’ve applied for several jobs. How can I find out the status?

Keep the job number or job ID handy and call our Client Services Office at (571) 423-3000. They may be able to help you, or will forward your call to the appropriate specialist.

What is the Withdraw button? My application status says Withdraw next to my submission, but I did not withdraw! What do I do?

Withdrawing your job application will not allow you to re-apply for that job. You can only re-activate your original application.  Once you have applied for a job opening, the resume and cover letter associated with that job opening cannot be changed.  To revise your contact information, work history, education history or attachments simply log in to your account and edit your profile.  The Withdraw button may not be available for up to 2 hours after you apply.  If you withdraw, your request may be pending for up to 2 hours before you can re-activate.
