A lot of times when you search for something on City-Data forums it gives you threads that are more than 4 years old.

Just a helpful hint but when replying to different posts on the same thread you can group the quoted posts and thus create only one post to answer all at one time. Click the icon to the right of the "quote" box on each post and then on the final selection click the "quote" box.

No I applied through the local philadelphia government site and the job posting only required that you email your resume and cover letter. The references wasn't requested until after the second interview which was the final step before hiring me for the job.
