Step 1. Search

There are two ways to search for a job.

Check out the DoIT Employee Opportunities page for a listing of DoIT job openings or visit the the Work For Illinois site and search for jobs available at other State of Illinois agencies. 

Veterans, persons with disabilities, and retired state employees, should click on the appropriate icon to learn about special programs for those groups before choosing one of the two search options above.

Step 2. Create your profile

All applications for agencies under the jurisdiction of the Governor are posted online at Work.Illinois.Gov.  The first step in applying for any position is to create an account and complete a profile. The first time you visit the site, click on "View Profile" and then "Create and Account."  

Step 3. Apply

Once a candidate locates a posted position for which they would like to apply, select the "Apply" button on the posting. For each position posted, there will be a section entired "Job Specific Questions." The application questions are a required part the of the application and are specific to the position. The application questions are designed to help CMS and the Hiring Agency evaluate all candidates. Ensure that you answer all of the questions, even if the information is already provided in your resume and/or Candidate Profile. Visit the Work For Illinois site for all of the details.
