We are pleased to announce that the State Civil Service Commission has made important new improvements to the civil service application and hiring process. Effective Monday, April 23, 2018, civil service examination postings will move to the commonwealth’s state employment website at www.employment.pa.gov. On this site, job seekers can view all current civil service and non-civil service employment opportunities and can apply for all positions on a single website. Job seekers can also sign up for “Job Alerts” to be notified by e-mail each time a new opportunity is posted for specific types of jobs that are selected by the job seeker.
Some civil service positions will require applicants to take a written examination at a test center. However, job seekers will also be able to apply to more civil service positions by completing an application and will receive an examination score based on their responses to job-related questions completed online.
We encourage you to review FAQS about this transition located on the State Civil Service Commission website (www.scsc.pa.gov) to learn much more about these improvements. Information about how this transition affects job seekers who are already on civil service lists from previously completed testing is also addressed. These FAQS will continue to be updated periodically to allow for continual communication with job seekers.
