STATE CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION UNVEILS NEW INTERACTIVE WEBSITE

     HARRISBURG (Dec. 2) – The State Civil Service Commission today unveiled its new, updated and more interactive website (www.scsc.state.pa.us) which makes it easier to apply online for tests offered at the agency’s testing centers and allows easier access to career-related information and other services the agency provides.

     The Commission’s website, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, was redesigned to be more user-friendly as part of Pennsylvania’s statewide AquaLogic Project to restructure and redesign agencies’ websites to be more consistent and easier to use.  

     “As part of the State Civil Service Commission’s overall commitment to providing the best quality product and services, we are pleased to offer those visiting our new website the opportunity to apply online directly by signing in on the homepage and to have more access to information and options for making career choices across Pennsylvania,” said Executive Director Jeffrey T. Wallace.

     The newly-designed site features new graphics, more dynamic links and more consistent navigation.  In addition, the new site makes it easier to access realistic job preview videos to provide job seekers with realistic examples of how jobs that interest them actually are performed.  

     Future improvements will include even better graphics and additional content.

     The State Civil Service Commission’s new site offers an easily-navigated series of connections to information about civil service jobs throughout the Commonwealth.

     The State Civil Service Commission administers the merit system in Pennsylvania, covering approximately 58,000 employees of 38 state agencies and another 10,000 employees of more than 300 county and local agencies.

     The agency administers tests for various merit system positions and compiles lists of eligible applicants.

     The Commission also investigates alleged violations of civil service regulations and holds hearings on appeals related to disputed personnel actions under its jurisdiction.
