Do you want to work for the New York State Government? Are you confused by the process? Civil Service. PEF. M/C. CSEA. What does all of this mean?!

Our panelists will answer all of these questions, AND MORE, and provide you with a step-by-step process for getting hired by any state agency. Our panelists will share their paths into state service and how they chose which agency to apply to and work for.

This program is great for both law school students and attorneys as we will discuss entry-level and experienced attorney hiring.
