1. I am 45, disabled, and my English is limited. Will these factors adversely affect chances in getting a state job?

No. The Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) law protects applicants from employment discrimination and the state hires people based on merits (the ability to perform a job). Hence, being older, disabled, or speak limited English, will not adversely affect your chance of getting a state job.

2. I have no job experience, can I still get a state job?

Certainly. You do not need to have job experience to get a state job or any job. You can use other experience you have such as volunteer or internship to showcase your ability. Any types of credentials you have such as a college degree or training certifications may qualify you or increase your chances as well.

3. Is the state even hiring?

The state always hires! As a matter of fact, the states will hire even more than before. The reason for this is that about 1/2 of current state employees are baby boomers (born 1946-1964) and are bound to retire in the next five years so the state are actively looking to seek the baby boomers' replacement. This is why now is the perfect time to apply for state jobs. Please click here for a list of job vacancies.
