The website of the State of New Jersey's Civil Service Commission posts job openings for its family and social services departments, accounting and financial services, and operations for the state's water and sewage treatment facilities, depending on availability. Requirements for each position are available on the website.
The main New Jersey Civil Service Commission page lists three main job categories in which qualified individuals can locate state, county or municipal jobs. These are open competitive jobs, promotional jobs and intergovernmental transfers. Open competitive jobs give citizens of New Jersey the opportunity to apply and compete for government jobs on the state, county and municipal levels. The Civil Service Commission website provides job postings in this category, as well as an online application portal.
Promotional jobs are open to current government employees and usually consist of vacancies in a particular department. These can include openings in the fields of health services, laboratory technology and agriculture. The state provides a special Web application avenue for promotional jobs. Intergovernmental transfers concern laid-off government employees and provide a means for them to re-enter the public sector in a different capacity. A police officer for state college campuses is one job individuals can find under this category.
