This section of StateJobsNY is for members of the general public seeking state employment, and lists those jobs for which an examination is not necessary.

The vast majority of state jobs do require that an applicant take and pass an appropriate civil service examination in order to qualify for consideration. We have provided a number of links to the Department of Civil Service, the agency responsible for civil service examinations, on the left side of this page.

More in-depth information on how to obtain state employment can be found by following the "How to Get a State Job" link on the left side navigation menu. We have included the answers to many of the questions we have received, which you can access by following the "FAQ" link on the left. Also on the left are links to browse and search vacancies open to the general public.

Accessibility Note: Those of you using assistive technology will probably find our forms easier to use with JavaScript turned off.

If you have any questions or comments about our new site, please contact the OER Web Services Division by email at statejobsny@oer.ny.gov.
