How can I find out about employment opportunities with HADC?
Employment opportunity information may be obtained from:
- our web site job listings
- our job postings in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution
All postings are updated as positions become available.
When does recruitment for posted positions end?
We typically post positions for two weeks. If there is an exception to this length of time, it will be included in the position advertisement. HADC reposts jobs if an insufficient number of qualified applicants have applied for an opening. Once a sufficient applicant pool is created, no further applications are accepted.
How do I apply for employment with HADC?
You may apply one of four ways:
- By faxing a resume and a cover letter to (404) 270-2593.
- By picking up an application at HADC's Central Office, located at 750 Commerce Drive, Suite 201, Decatur, GA.
- By mailing a cover letter and resume to Dekalb Housing Authority, 750 Commerce Drive, Suite 201, Decatur, GA. 30030.
- By emailing a cover letter and resume to our Jobline
HADC accepts applications only for posted positions. Applications must be submitted before the closing date listed in the job posting.
What happens after I submit my application?
The application is forwarded to the Personnel Manager. The Personnel Manager reviews all applications received and then forwards them to the appropriate manager for further screening. After the manager identifies the applicants to be interviewed, the selected candidates will be contacted to arrange interview appointments. Once a selection is made, all interviewed candidates will be notified of the decision.
How can I find out about the status of my application?
Because of the large number of applications received, HADC does not notify an applicant as to the receipt of their application, if it was received by the closing date, or if someone else was selected for the opening. Only interviewed candidates are notified of the decision.
How long will my application remain active?
Applications are kept on file for one year. During that period, you do not have to submit a new application to apply for any other job posting. Instead, express your interest in writing to notify our staff that you would like to be considered for another opening. An applicant is responsible for contacting us if they wish to be considered for a specific opening.
HADC may contact qualified applicants to inquire if they have an interest in a particular job opening.
