How to Apply
We are so excited that you are considering the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as an employer! Let’s get started.
First, there are two types of service within the commonwealth: civil service and non-civil service. Second, you’ll notice that we have two different types of postings on our website. They are:
- Vacancy postings
- Exam postings (in-person and online)
The vacancy postings apply to all of our non-civil service jobs and most of our civil service covered jobs.
We talk more about this process on our Applying to a Vacancy Page:
Some civil service covered jobs require you to complete an exam, either online or in-person, before you can apply to a vacancy. The exam postings are listed as “Civil Service Written/Online Exam for Future Vacancies” on our website. Have questions? No problem!
