If you're new to employment with the State of California, you must complete the exam and application process below.

WHY TAKE AN EXAM?

Department of Conservation is part of the merit-based California civil service selection system. This is to ensure individuals hired into and promoted within civil service are selected on the basis of their job-related qualifications. Therefore, to determine if an applicant qualifies for a specific job type, they must complete an examination for each job type (classification) to establish eligibility. Upon completing an exam, the applicant receives their results. Once a person successfully establishes eligibility for the specific job title/classification, they may apply for an advertised job vacancy.

Select and prepare for exam. Review the exam bulletin and classification specifications carefully to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications, follow the "how to apply for the exam" instructions, and review the testing methods.

Take the exam and review your results. Successful exam candidates are determined eligible for a job title/classification and placed on an employment list divided into ranks by score. Only candidates in the top three ranks are immediately eligible for employment and can apply for job openings in the classification for which they tested. Your exam results letter will tell you your score and/or rank. Once you're on an employment list, you may start receiving letters from CalConservation and other state agencies inviting you to apply for openings. Each of these invitations will note their specific application requirements.
