Frequently Asked Questions – Employment

How do I apply for a position with the Department of Banking?

Click here to view and apply for current open positions with the Texas Department of Banking. You must create an account in the CAPPS system (or sign in if you already have a CAPPS account) to apply.

May I submit a resume to apply for a job?

We require a job application for all of our openings.  You may upload your resume with your application, but all prior employment information must be listed in your CAPPS application. Incomplete information will not be considered.

Can I apply through Indeed.com or LinkedIn.com?

We can only accept applications directly through CAPPS or workintexas.com (CAPPS is preferred; see question below regarding additional steps required for applications submitted via workintexas.com).

If I submitted my application on WorkInTexas.com, is that sufficient to be considered for a position at the Department of Banking?

YES, you may submit your State of Texas Application through Work in Texas. However, some of our open positions require a copy of your college transcripts. Work in Texas does not allow you to include attachments, so it is recommended that you apply through CAPPS, or you can email transcripts and other attachments to jobs@dob.texas.gov.

 

Do I have to submit transcripts with the application?

If the posting requires a degree, a copy of official transcripts must be uploaded and submitted via CAPPS or email to jobs@dob.texas.gov for your application to be considered. If you are unable to submit your transcripts at the time of application, please contact jobs@dob.texas.gov immediately and state your expected time frame for submitting your transcripts. Failure to do so may mean your application will not be considered. We cannot accept transcripts once the position has been closed.

Do I have to submit all the transcripts from every college I have attended?

Transcripts are used for verification of the minimum qualifications for the position. For example, if college accounting classes are required you should submit as many transcripts as necessary to verify the completion and grades for your accounting courses. Transcripts should include all degrees conferred and must be clear and readable.

If I don’t have an official copy of my transcripts, should I submit the application first, then the transcripts later?

The application cannot be processed without the transcripts if transcripts are required. If you are unable to submit your transcripts at the time of application, please contact jobs@dob.texas.gov immediately and state your expected time frame for submitting your transcripts. Failure to do so may mean your application will not be considered. We cannot accept transcripts once the position has been closed.

How can I determine the deadline to apply?

In CAPPS, click on the job requisition. The first section provides basic details about the position, including the “Closing Date”. Applications are accepted until 11:59 pm on the date the position closes.

If the Closing Date is listed as “ongoing,” this position will remain open until the Department has sufficient applicants to interview. Postings will close when a sufficient pool of applications are received for consideration and/or a candidate is selected.

If I do not meet the minimum qualifications listed on the posting, will I still be considered for the position?

All applicants must meet the established minimum qualifications to be considered for the position.

When will I know if I am being considered for the position?

Qualified applicants selected for an interview are contacted by telephone or email. Applicants who interview are notified when a final selection is made. To inquire about the status of your application contact Human Resources at (512) 475-1335.

Some postings indicate “must be a commissioned bank examiner” as a minimum qualification. What is that and how does the applicant satisfy that requirement?

Positions at the level of Financial Examiner IV and above generally require the candidate to be a commissioned bank examiner. A bank examiner receives a commissioning after extensive on-the-job and technical training and passes a rigorous examination. In addition to the Texas Department of Banking, other agencies that commission examiners are the FDIC, Federal Reserve, OCC, and approved banking authorities in other states.

What type of travel is required?

If travel is required, the job vacancy postings will indicate the amount of travel required. Generally, Financial Examiner positions require at least 50% travel and some overnight travel. Teams travel to examine banks or other regulated entities and may stay out of town in a hotel for an entire week. Examiners also travel to training for a week or more at a time. Approved travel and business expenses are reimbursable.

What benefits are available to employees?

Employees of the State of Texas and the Department of Banking receive a comprehensive benefits package.  For details, please visit our Employee Benefits page.

How long does the Department of Banking hold applications?

Applications are considered only for the open position indicated on the application.  Applications are not held for future consideration.
