Greetings from the Director of State Civil Service

Civil Service Director Shannon Templet

New Job Seekers’ Homepage

I am pleased to announce that effective March 16, 2015, a new job seekers’ landing page was launched at www.jobs.la.gov. The new portal for applicants was created in order to assist applicants with accessing information regarding testing and applying for State classified jobs. The new landing page is more streamlined and attractive, using graphics to guide applicants and relay information which in the past was buried in pages of extensive text. In addition, we have added a number of aids such as a first-time user guide and FAQs categorized by topic to readily provide applicants the information they need.

Please let us know what you think of this new page at SCSInfo@la.gov.

Office Closure – The Louisiana Department of State Civil Service and Baton Rouge Information and Recruiting Office will be closed on Friday, July 3, 2015  for the observance of Independence Day.  There will be no Civil Service testing on this day.

*Please note that the State of LA is not responsible for postings viewed outside of the LA Careers system. Applicants must apply during the open period for announced vacancies, and late applications, no matter their source, will not be accepted
