The announcement of a civil service exam for county, towns, villages, school districts, and special districts does not necessarily mean there are immediate job openings. Rather, exams are given to establish an eligible list of qualified candidates that will be used to fill future job openings as they occur. An eligible list is established for a minimum of one year and up to a maximum of four years.

If you do not wish to submit an application online you may download a printable application here. Please mail, fax or drop off your application and exam fee to Oswego County Human Resources, 46 East Bridge Street, Oswego, NY 13126. Fax: 315-349-8254.
