Employment (with the State of CT)

The State of Connecticut has transitioned its recruitment process to a paperless Online Employment Center.  Mailed or faxed applications will no longer be accepted and you will only have to create one electronic application, which can be updated/changed to apply for various positions. To receive notification about future job openings, fill out the interest cards and you will receive an e-mail when a position in your interested field becomes available.
