State law requires persons receiving public assistance under the CalWORKS Program to be given priority consideration for vacancies in State Civil Service positions allocated to non-testing (seasonal and part-time) classifications. Therefore, priority consideration will be given to these applicants who meet the qualifications for a seasonal job classification and the Department will hire all qualified job applicants who are receiving public assistance before hiring any other candidates after consideration has been made for all conditions described in the Seasonal Jobs Section.
