New York City’s civil service process is guided by New York State Civil Service Law, which ensures that the hiring process is competitive and fair. The process begins with employment examinations that measure a potential candidate’s merit and fitness for a particular title. In some instances, taking an exam is the beginning of a hiring process that may lead to employment with NYC Health + Hospitals.
The New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) schedules and administers our civil service exams. If you have questions about exams, test dates or other exam-related issues, please visit DCAS at DCAS Civil Service Jobs.
You may contact the DCAS Application Unit by emailing OASys@dcas.nyc.gov. You should include your confirmation number for questions regarding your online application.
To obtain information on any examination for which you have already applied, but not yet received results, please email DCAS via the following link: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/dcas/about/contact-us.page.
If you have already taken an exam and received your official score and list number, read about what to expect after the NYC civil service exam.
