Important Additional Information

Most DEC positions are filled by eligible lists resulting from examination in accordance with Civil Service Law. The position(s) that are listed as Open to Candidates That Meet the Minimum Qualifications are for job vacancies where no viable eligible list exists or use of an eligible list is not required by law.

To find out about the civil service process and how to get on an eligible list for positions at DEC, review the information on Civil Service Basics and DEC Examination Announcements.

Section 55-b and 55-c of Civil Service Law permits the appointment of certain disabled individuals to positions that are filled by open-competitive examination where the examination is waived for the individual. The individual must meet the open competitive minimum qualifications and be able to perform the essential duties of the position. Complete information on the Workers With Disabilities Program (leaves DEC website) is available from the Department of Civil Service.
