Continuous Recruitment Promotion or Transition Examinations Open to State Employees

Applications for most continuous recruitment examinations are accepted continuously, with no application deadline. Examinations are conducted whenever there is a need for qualified individuals. If there is a written test, applicants are informed by mail of the upcoming test date.

Note that some of the salaries on each examination announcement may not reflect any increased amounts that may result from negotiations between the State and the public employee unions.
