How do I know what jobs are available?

You are welcome to apply for any examination announced to the public (competitive class titles) or any currently available opening not requiring an examination (exempt, non-competitive, and labor class titles) for which you meet the minimum qualifications.

Examination notices include the competitive class title, a description of the position, the minimum qualifications required for admittance to the exam, and a description of the subject matter to be covered in the examination. Applications are available from the Regional Civil Service Commission office. Other jurisdictions on our mailing list, such as towns, villages, school districts, and libraries may also have exam notices posted. We recommend you check for new exam notices each month. Candidates that are successful on the exam are placed on an eligible list in rank order. As job opportunities become available, candidates are canvassed to determine interest and availability for employment. Appointing authorities are required to fill positions with candidates that are among the top three highest standing candidates on the eligible list willing to accept appointments.

How do I apply? Whether you are interested in a tested or a non-tested position, the same application, available from the Regional Civil Service Commission office, should be completed.
