This section of StateJobsNY is for members of the general public seeking state employment.

While the vast majority of state jobs typically require that an applicant take and pass an appropriate civil service examination in order to qualify for consideration, New York State recently implemented a program to temporarily waive the examination requirement for nearly all jobs. Under the New York Hiring for Emergency Limited Placement Program Statewide or NY HELPS Program, jobseekers must meet the jobs' minimum qualifications and any other conditions of employment. Please explore the resources under "Helpful Links" on the left side of this page to learn more about working for New York State.
