Application Attachments: What Should Be Sent to Payroll Services
By EPIC and Recruitment Services
In Workplace Alaska, an employee may provide many types of attachments with their application, but it is not appropriate to send all of them to Payroll Services (PDF). For the majority of hires, only the application and certain attachments used to support meeting the minimum qualifications (MQs) are needed.
The following is a list of applicable attachments to send with the application, and should only be included if they are needed to support that the employee meets the MQs:
- Cover Letter
- Transcripts or Degree Certificate
- Copies of Licenses or Certificates
Additional documents that may apply and should be included with the application are:
- Nepotism Waiver (PDF)
- Advanced step placement approval (only the approval; do not send the justification documents)
- Resume, if the employee is in the Paritially Exempt or Exempt service
Please do not include any writing samples, court documents, letters of recommendations, miscellaneous licenses and training certificates, or evaluations the employee may have provided. The hiring manager will need to keep those with their recruitment documents, but they are not kept in the permanent record.
If you have any questions, or would like help in determining whether or not a document should be included, please contact the recruitment staff in your department’s Human Resource Office.
FY 2018 Workforce Profile
The State of Alaska Workforce Profile for Fiscal Year 2018 (PDF) is now available on the Division of Personnel & Labor Relations homepage.
The Workforce Profile is specific to Executive Branch employees, and contains counts of these employees by department, region, location, gender, age, bargaining unit, and other categories. Copies of the current and prior year profiles, and other publications, are found on the Division of Personnel and Labor Relation website under Reports.
Please contact Kim Garrett of the Employee Planning and Information Center if you have questions about these publications.
