How do I become a Sanitarian?
Step 1: Contact
or visit Workforce -
West Virginia Office for information or visit the West Virginia Division of
Personnel web site:
Applying for State Jobs
Step 2: Once you
have completed the application process with the West Virginia of Personnel, your
application will be rated and your name will be
placed on a register for the counties in which you have indicated you will
Step 3: When a vacancy for a Sanitarian occurs, the agency that has the
vacancy has several options. They can:
1. Post the vacancy as a Sanitarian 1,
for which they will request a copy of the register for their county. If
your name is on the register for that county, you can be called for an interview.
You can also apply directly to an agency for a vacancy in an area in which you
had not expressed interest. Vacancies are posted at the
Personnel web site.
2. Post the vacancy requiring that applicants
already be trained
and/or registered. Only those already working in Sanitarian positions
within the State will be eligible candidates for such a posting.
3. Post the vacancy for multiple levels of experience, filling only one
job with the best candidate based on those who apply. This enables an
office to hire someone who has no experience to fill a vacancy, if no one who is
already trained applies.
