  IMPORTANT NOTICE - Online Services Modification

5/18/2015 - Effective May 19, 2015; SCSC’s Online Services “Main Menu”, which is used by jobseekers to apply for open merit service job announcements, schedule examinations and view “Rank On Lists”, will have a new look and appearance. A general benefit of the redesigned webpage is to provide jobseekers a concise description of the status of each submitted job application. 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. From this page, the jobseeker will be able to maneuver through job announcements that may have additional hyperlinks to important information.
