The Town of Lincoln advertises available jobs in The Valley Breeze newspaper and frequently advertises in the Providence Journal paper. In essence, it can be either/or, depending on the type of position available. Good advice is to always check both newspapers when looking for new employment.

An Internal Posting means that only union employees who presently work for the Town may apply for the position. After the posting time has ended, a help-wanted ad is placed in the newspaper and any individual may apply for the position. This process is part of the union contract agreement.
The Town uses the following process: Each ad has an open and close date, which is typically 7-10 days in duration. This means that an individual has a week to ten days to mail in her/his resume and cover letter. Once the ad closes, the list of all applying candidates is reviewed by the Town Administrator, Personnel Director, and Director of the Department that has the vacancy. The responsibility of the above committee is to review the credentials of all applications and decide on the number of individuals who will be asked for an interview. These candidates are notified and a mutually convenient interview time is arranged. Once the interviews are complete, the committee selects the best-qualified candidate(s) for the position. Once all references are checked and a police background investigation has been done, plus any testing that may be necessary, the selected candidate is officially offered the position. All other applicants are notified by a regret / thank you letter.
