While internal applicants will be required to apply for posted positions, principals and district supervisors will use the Transfer List to ensure that an internal applicant is eligible for a transfer. In this case, the principal/district supervisor will use the transfer list as a way to identify interested applicants.
- Internal applicants will be required to complete an online application for posted job listings. On the new job listings website, you will need to click the "Internal" link that is located at the top of the page. This will allow Katy ISD employees to view postings that are just for internal applicants.
- An online application will allow internal candidates to apply online for posted positions. This process will remove the need to have internal applicants submit (email, mail, fax, etc.) a letter of interest to the campus principal or district supervisor. Resumes and letters of interest will all be uploaded into the application.
- Automated reference forms will be distributed using the internal online application once a Katy ISD employee applies for a vacant position. Katy ISD employees need three references (including one from your current supervisor).
As a result of this process, internal applicants will take the following action steps when applying for posted positions:
Internal applicants will be required to upload resumes and interest letters based upon the position for which they are applying. Once an internal application has been completed by an employee, the application can be updated for each position of interest thereafter.
