NEW YORK STATE IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYER:  It is the policy of the State of New York to provide for and promote equal opportunity in employment, compensation and other terms and conditions of employment without discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, religion, disability, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or arrest and/or criminal conviction record unless based upon a bona fide occupational qualification or other exception.

To Obtain a State Job

Jobs at the Department of Public Service are generally filled through the competitive civil service examination process. Unless you are either a current State employee who is eligible for transfer, or a former State employee who is eligible for reinstatement, you must first meet the qualifications to take a specific exam, file for it and achieve a passing score. Your name will then be placed on an "eligible list" which is used when a State agency has a position to fill in that title. Copies of exam announcements are available at the New York State Department of Civil Service's web site.
