Helpful Tips for Successfully Applying for State of Illinois Jobs: 

You must apply for each job posting separately, via the online portal, following the specific application instructions included in the job posting. 

Please do not email your resume or job application to our agency. You will not be considered for any position for which you do not directly apply through the online portal.

Information provided on each online job application is used to determine your eligibility for appointment to that State of Illinois position.  Thus, it is critical that all information requested and questions asked be responded to accurately and completely.  Omitted, incomplete, or inconsistent information may result in the application being denied or the issuance of an ineligible grade for the position title.

It is strongly suggested that you not respond to application questions with “see resume” or a similar response, unless your resume contains a great deal of detail on your prior experience and work history.  Doing so will make it less likely that you are providing us with the necessary information we will need to determine whether or not you are well qualified for the position for which you are applying, and potentially lead to disqualification when you might truly be qualified. The more detail you provide in your answers to application questions, the more likely we will find the knowledge, skills, experience, and abilities that we are seeking.

Please consider this application your initial job interview.  Be as descriptive as possible and add all of your responsibilities/duties with a complete explanation. When submitting your online application, please be sure to upload a legible copy of your official college transcripts and any other additional certifications, prior position title grades, or professional licenses which may be necessary for the position to which you are applying.

Most importantly, please be patient once you have applied for a position.  It can take months to work through a hiring sequence and it is not at all unusual for it to take up to 6 months from the time a job is posted until it is ultimately filled.
