Below is a roundup of New York City exams leading to public service positions.
The application period for new civil service exams generally begins on the first Wednesday of each month.
Prospective applicants are advised to write or call the appropriate office to make sure they meet the qualifications needed to apply for an exam. For jobs for which no written tests are given, candidates will be rated on education and experience, or by oral tests or performance exams.
There are residency requirements for many New York City jobs.

As of August 2, 2021, all new hires must be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, unless they have been granted a reasonable accommodation for religion or disability. If you are offered city employment, this requirement must be met by your date of hire, unless a reasonable accommodation for exemption is received and approved by the hiring agency.
DCAS Computer-based Testing and Application Centers (CTACs) have re-opened to the public. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, walk-ins are no longer accepted and appointments must be scheduled online through OASys.
Appointments are available for eligible list-related inquiries and examination-related inquiries. Limited-capacity civil service examinations will also be administered at all CTACs, except for the Bronx location.
