State Hiring Process
The State hiring process can be challenging, especially if you are new to State service. To simplify the process, follow the 3 Steps of the State Hiring Process:
STEP 1: Create and Set Up Your Profile
Visit the California Department of Human Resources (CalHR) job posting website.
Click on “Create a new profile” and sign up.
Once you have signed up, set up your profile by completing the “My Application” section. By completing this section, you are setting up your State Application (STD 678), which you will use when applying for job openings.
STEP 2: Search For and Take an Examination (Exam)
If you are new to employment with the State of California, you must pass an “open” exam before you may apply. You will need to pass a separate exam for each desired classification.
SEARCH FOR AN EXAM: The exam is a preliminary screening tool that pre-qualifies you to be able to apply for job openings. If you are new to State employment, you may apply only for exams designated as “open” to the public. If you are a veteran, you may apply for both “open” and “promotional” exams. Browse Examinations.
APPLY FOR AN EXAM: Follow the instructions on the exam bulletin on how to apply. If you meet all the criteria, including the minimum qualifications, either complete and submit a Standard State Application (STD 678) or apply and take the exam via the Internet.
STEP 3: Apply for Jobs
Once eligibility has been established, you can start searching and applying for job openings in the classification for which you have successfully tested.
