Helpful links to information will be provided for each job application to assist the jobseeker in understanding what job titles they applied for; date, time and location of scheduled examination(s); how to update a submitted job application and status of any tested application(s) in the SCSC workflow review process.

Jobseekers logged into SCSC “Online Services” will be advised that they must carefully read the examination announcement(s) to make certain they meet all job requirements prior to applying. A link to the “Summary of Civil Service Examinations” will appear on the “Online Application Examination List” and “Job Class List” pages. This link will open to a new window.
