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.

Helpful Hints:
#1 With most applications there is the option to attach a cover letter. Please be aware that if you change your cover letter and attach a new one, it will replace the cover letter in all previous applications. There is a long-answer box within the application itself for you to type a cover letter and that allows you to customize it for the job you are applying for.

#2 Uploading Attachments - you are limited to uploading 6 documents as attachments. If, for instance, you have multiple transcripts, we suggest you scan them all into one document and upload it that way. The same with the other attachments. If those documents are multiple pages, scan them all together into one document and upload it that way.

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.
