To ensure that the NYC DCAS hiring process is both competitive and fair, the City of New York often fills many of its vacant positions using the Civil Service Process. Job eligibility exams are often required by the City of New York and will be the start of the recruitment process for most vacant positions. Below you will find information regarding the Department of Citywide Administrative Services jobs recruitment process:

  • Application Process: To begin the DCAS application process, you will need to visit the NYC Jobs webpage. Once you have made a selection based on your qualifications, you may be required to register for a pre-employment exam. Your pre-hire test or tests will be determined by the position or program you have applied for.
  • Phone Screening: If your resume and test scores are deemed to be a match for the role you are pursuing within the New York City government or at DCAS, you may be invited to participate in a phone screening interview.
