All applicants for certain clerical titles are required to take and pass the Clerical/Office Support Jobs Examination. This one test is used for the following clerical/office support job titles:
Office Assistant 1, 2 and 3 (typing positions and non-typing positions)
Lottery Business Support Technician 1 and 2
- Secretary 1 and 2
- Administrative Secretary
Some specialized support jobs such as Accounting Technician, Customer Service Representative, and Telephone Operator require a different examination. Please read each posting very carefully. Also, some jobs require a typing test (click here for more information on the typing test).
There is no fee for any Division of Personnel written test. The same examination is used for all clerical titles. While applicants must apply for each title separately prior to testing, they only need to take the test once to be scored for any of the titles that is open for applications. Applicants must meet stated job minimum requirements to qualify.
We do not take appointments for testing. Simply apply online
