Take the Civil Service exam
Most jobs in the City of New York require that you take and pass a test. This test is known as a Civil Service Exam.
You have to pay a fee to take a Civil Service exam. However, some New Yorkers—including veterans, people receiving public assistance or Unemployment Insurance benefits, and others— are eligible for a fee waiver.
Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the exams are offered online only.
