TalentEd Recruit & Hire (link)

The Bismarck Public School District uses an online application process. All external applicants must complete the online application to be considered for all job openings with BPS.

The link for the internal application is found in the upper right corner at the TalentEd Recruit & Hire site. Current BPS employees can complete the internal application to apply for positions in the same category as their current job (i.e., current contracted teachers applying for a different teaching position, support staff employees applying for a different support staff position, etc.). Temporary employees and substitutes, both regular and long term, are NOT considered internal applicants and should complete the external application to apply for posted positions.

Veteran's Preference will be applied for qualified applicants in compliance with the North Dakota Century Code.


Job Service North Dakota (link)

Job Service North Dakota provides customer-focused services to meet the current and emerging workforce needs of the state.
