ABOUT LOCAL GOVERNMENT CIVIL SERVICE EXAMINATIONS

In New York State, competitive civil service examinations provide a way to ensure that appointments to public service jobs are based on merit and fitness, as required by the New York State Constitution, Article V, Section 6. Those people who are interested in public service employment must demonstrate that they have the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to do a particular job by taking a civil service examination. In every county in New York State, examinations are given by the county civil service agency for specific job titles under their jurisdiction.
