Free email services are available by numerous service providers, such as Yahoo or Hotmail.

I do not see the job that I am interested in today. Does the City have more career opportunities?
You are encouraged to fill out a job interest card with the City of Alexandria. This feature provides you with the opportunity to select a job(s) by Job Class or Category of interest to you, which will generate automatic email notifications when a position is advertised.
