How We Hire

A man greets a woman with a handshake
  1. Apply

    Once you’ve identified a job that matches your skills and education and one that you’re interested in, we invite you to submit your application online. You’ll have a chance to upload your resume and you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail once your application is complete and submitted.

    If you’re interested in employment at Jackson EMC, but don’t see a specific position to apply for, you can still stay connected with us. Simply set up your profile and sign up to receive an e-mail notification on future career opportunities that interest you.

  2. Interview

    Our recruiting team works with hiring managers to review applications. Once we’ve determined that you’re a potential match for our opening, we’ll reach out to you to schedule an interview. During the interview process, we want to learn more about your experience and goals and how they will transfer to Jackson EMC. Be sure to learn about our organization and culture so you can identify ways that your skills, experience, and background can support the organization you want to join. Feel free to ask questions that will help you decide whether the job will be right for you.

  3. Your Application Status

    Your application and interview status will be updated as the process moves along. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to fill an opening can depend on many different factors. We ask for your patience if there’s no immediate contact after applying.

Nepotism Policy (Employment of Relatives)

Close relatives of Jackson EMC's employees or directors will not be considered for employment by the Cooperative either on a temporary or a permanent basis. The term "close relative" means children, foster or stepchildren, or their spouses; husband; wife; sister; brother; parents, foster or stepparents; grandparents; aunts; uncles; nieces; nephews; mother-in-law or father-in-law; sister-in-law or brother-in-law, either by blood or marriage; or any relative residing in the employees' or directors' households.

The main purpose of this policy is to make employment available to as many different families as possible, in keeping with the public service nature of our Cooperative’s business.
