HELP Program – No Examinations Required

The Hiring for Emergency Limited Placement (HELP) Program temporarily removes the civil service exam requirement for more than 100 direct care, health and human services titles across State agencies. To be eligible for jobs in the HELP program, candidates must meet the jobs’ minimum qualifications and any other conditions of employment. 

Since launching the HELP Program in April 2023, we have hired over 6,500 New Yorkers to these critical roles. In May 2024, we will be launching an expanded program, NY HELPS, to streamline hiring of all open-competitive positions. Some agencies are already posting jobs as part of NY HELPS. To view open jobs, please visit State Jobs.(External Link) To narrow your search to NY HELPS jobs, click on “For the General Public”, then “Vacancies”, and enter “NY HELPS” in the search field.

All Exam Fees Waived! Please note that civil service exam application fees are now waived for all New York State civil service exams through December 2025.
