How to Apply to a New York State Job

  1. Classified Service

    The first step is to take and pass a civil service examination for a title in your area of interest. Civil service exams are specific to a job or a class of jobs (for example, there might be a specific test for an air conditioning mechanic, but one clerical test might suit for 10 or 12 different titles), and are scheduled as a previous eligible list expires or diminishes as people are hired from it. Jobs which require civil service exams are referred to as being in the “classified” service.

    The overwhelming majority of jobs in the Executive Branch are classified by the Department of Civil Service, and require that candidates take and pass a civil service examination in order to qualify for employment.

  2. Non-Classified Service

    Look for a position that does not require a Civil Service examination, known as a “non-classified” position. Usually these jobs are filled by people with specific professional licenses or have other special qualifications. While these jobs may be available without an examination, you may not have all the protections afforded an employee in the classified service.
