The 5 pm closing date means this is the last date and time an application will be accepted for that position. The closing date is indicated on the Job Announcement. The application can be delivered in person, online, by hand-mail, by the U.S. postal service or any other mail delivery service, or by facsimile at 251-981-1442. If an application is received by any of these methods after 5 pm, the application will not be reviewed and will be returned to the applicant. A position that states "position will remain open until filled" indicates applications are continuously evaluated until further notice. The announcement may be closed at any time without prior notice.
