Governor Cuomo Announces Online State Recruitment Resources Center for Persons and Veterans With Disabilities

Press Releases

Certified Program Participants May Now Submit Information for State Employment Consideration at www.cs.ny.gov.

Albany, NY - August 25, 2014 - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the launch of the online State Recruitment Resources Center, which will serve as the central online employment recruitment location for job seekers who are certified eligible for participation in the Governor’s Program to Hire Persons and Veterans With Disabilities. The website enables job seekers to upload their resume and transcript, and also provides application information regarding disability certification, so that they can be best connected with employment opportunities at State agencies.

“With the launch of this online portal, veterans and people with disabilities are gaining more access than ever to the State’s job market,” Governor Cuomo said. “This is another way that we are working to bring more opportunities to New Yorkers in every corner of the state, and I encourage all eligible job seekers to utilize this new tool today.”

The Recruitment Resources Center is available from the Department of Civil Service’s website.

The Governor’s Program to Hire Persons and Veterans With Disabilities, known as the 55-b and 55-c programs, respectively, allows qualified persons and veterans with disabilities to be appointed to entry-level competitive civil service positions without a written examination. New York State’s Civil Service Law designates 1,200 entry level positions for the 55-b program for persons with disabilities. Further, State law provides for 500 entry level positions under the 55-c program specifically for veterans with disabilities.

The first step in the program is to apply for certification with the Department of Civil Service’s Employee Health Service. Once applicants have been certified for the 55-b or 55-c programs, they can submit their information in one place online indicating employment history, academic achievements, as well as geographic location preferences for State employment. State agencies will use the 55 b/c Recruitment Resources Center to identify candidates for entry level positions.

“We are encouraging all qualified applicants to utilize this convenient employment resource,” said Civil Service Commissioner Jerry Boone. “These entry-level positions often provide qualified persons and veterans with disabilities a starting point to build a productive career working in State government.”
