will be changed from temporary pending Civil Service Commission Action to permanent non-competitive and
the official probationary period will begin.

At a future date (within one year of permanent appointment), it is expected employees hired under NY HELPS
will have their non-competitive employment status converted to competitive status, without having to
compete in an examination. Employees will then be afforded with all of the same rights and privileges of
competitive class employees of New York State. While serving permanently in a NY HELPS title, employees
may take part in any promotion examination for which they are qualified.

If you are on the Professional Career Opportunities (PCO) eligible list, please state that along with your score
in your cover letter.

Some positions may require additional credentials or a background check to verify your identity.
