It is almost next to impossible for most people to land a job at Area 51, even if one is a decent aeronautical engineer, an avionics-related weapons systems specialist, etc., unless by high recommendation from a high-ranking member of the upper management of the Groom Lake operations. 
At present, there are an estimated 1200 to 1800 employees working for highly compartmentalized projects for several defense contractors present at the base. 
In addition, there are an estimated 1500 defense specialists who are indirectly related to Groom Lake operations who do not work at the base. 
One has to be a U.S. citizen in order to be able to land a position at the base. 
The only application form for an "outsider" to even attempt to find a job at Area 51 is through an organization called JT3, a joint venture of Raytheon and URS (former EG & G) and several other contractors. 
Even if one is accepted by JT3, it will be JT3 itself which initially decides where you will be assigned to, whether it be in Nevada, Southern California or Utah. 
The APPLICATION FORM is in their website. 
Fraudulent applicants could easily be traced by JT3 and could be reported to Federal authorities.
Here is the website for JT3:
