I'd like to work for Cecil County Government. How do I go about applying for a job with you?

We advertise our position vacancies in the local newspapers, radio station Job Hotlines, and with organizations such as the Maryland Employment Service, the NAACP, and local community colleges. We also post these positions on the bulletin board in the lobby of the Human Resources Office, and you will find them online on this website!

What happens when I see a job I'm interested in?

You may apply online at or come to the Human Resources Department, Room 2800 - County Administration Bldg., 200 Chesapeake Blvd., Elkton to complete an online application for the specific job opening. Our office is open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Please allow 30 minutes of time to complete an online application. You may call us at (410) 996-5250 to obtain more information about a vacancy. (Please note: most positions have a deadline date which must be met in order to be considered.)

I don't see a position I'm interested in or qualified for right now. Can't I just send a resume for anything that might become available in the future?

Our policy is to only accept applications for current advertised vacancies. However, once you have an application on file with our office, we will retain it for one year. Should you see another position which is of interest, you can call us at (410) 996-5250 and we will reactivate your application for that new position vacancy.
