Finding open vacancies through Civil Service can be a complex and complicated process. Each department may maintain their own Civil Service Vacancies page or have different ways to apply. The easiest way to find Civil Service Open-Competitive positions is through the The Chief (also online at http://thechiefleader.com/) and Federal Jobs (Also online at http://www.jobsfed.com/) Newspapers. These periodicals, found in the Career Center, are the easiest way to find open positions in the area. Because they are Reference copies, they may not leave the library. But ask us, and we will be happy to show you where they are.
Also, it’s important to note that Suffolk County Civil Service is not listed in the Chief or Federal Jobs. You will have to go through the Suffolkcountyny.gov website to find vacancies in Suffolk County. Another major employer, Stony Brook University, is also not listed. Vacancies @ Stony Brook could be found by clicking here.

In my past recruiting roles, I would do simple searches on job boards like Careerbuilder or Monster. Recently, however, I learned there are even better ways to find candidates that possess all the qualities the job opening requires.
Recruiters are effectively utilizing Boolean search strings to identify top candidate matches.

Here’s the lowdown: a “professional network” is just code for “friends who are willing to help each other professionally.” Building yours doesn’t have to be hard, and it shouldn’t feel sleazy. Here’s how to do it.
How to Skip the Sleaze and Build a Real Professional Network – LifeHacker
Don’t forget to read this resource-rich and highly informative article on building your professional network. In simple language, it explains that your professional network is really just a buzzword for your work-friends. If you think of them as they really are, people you enjoy spending time with (Most people work 40-50 hours a week at work) and would help you as you would help them, then the conniving air of “Network-building” disappears. It has helpful tips for keeping in touch with former colleagues as well. Above all, treat your network like the people you respect and appreciate. Make time to spend time with them!
