An interview will occur after you apply to ensure a successful match between you, the department, and the job. However, for some short-term or one-time positions the interview process may be waived or modified.
An orientation is provided that acquaints you with Marion County policies and procedures. Also included in the orientation are the expectations you should have for the county, expectations the county has of you, and general information about departments, advisory boards, and volunteer opportunities. The county volunteer orientation is provided by the county volunteer coordinator and is required for all affiliated volunteers. Orientation is available on-line, and can be completed at the volunteer's own pace. Orientation usually takes about an hour to complete.
Additional training is provided by the department or program. At that time, you will receive a department orientation, workplace safety requirements, department procedures, and supervision to develop necessary job skills.
Recognition is important to the county. As a Marion County volunteer, you will be thanked for your contribution. Each spring during National Volunteer Week, county volunteers are thanked and recognized.
Evaluation and feedback of the work that you have accomplished and guidance on the expectations of the position should be provided by your department supervisor. As a valued volunteer, you are invited to offer ideas and suggestions that help keep the county's programs and services in touch with the needs of the people of Marion County.
