How to Find out About Civil Service Examinations
All announcements, both new and old, will be available exclusively on the Department of Civil Service website at www.cs.ny.gov. For the convenience of potential applicants and other stakeholders, the Department provides an automatic email notification of new exam announcements. Subscription information is at www.cs.ny.gov/announ/emaillist.cfm. These emails provide links to individual announcements so that applicants can obtain more detailed information about each examination. We will ask facilities that traditionally have posted the paper announcements–libraries, Department of Labor offices, community centers and others–to continue to do so.
Although some individuals may not own a computer themselves, computers are increasingly available for use at libraries, religious/community organizations, public/private/not-for-profit employment services as well as through friends and relatives. We encourage job seekers to avail themselves of these online services.
