Where can I find Job Listings?

1) Click HERE for listings or type in this web address.   http://agency.governmentjobs.com/sc/default.cfm

Do I have to submit a separate application/resume for each position I apply for?

Yes. South Carolina state agencies do not hold applications to review for future job openings. When an application is submitted, it is used for a particular job opening. You may complete and save an application so it will be ready for you to submit when you do find one of our job openings in which you have an interest.

You may also request e-mail notification from the main jobs page by selecting a job category in which you may be interested in applying for a job. When a job is posted in that particular category, you will be sent an email to let you know of that posting, and you can then apply for that position.

How do I Apply?

Applicants must have the stated minimum education and experience or an acceptable equivalent to qualify for listed positions and to receive consideration. Priority will normally be given to candidates who meet the Department of Mental Health Preferred Education, Training and Experience qualifications. Applications submitted by mail must be postmarked on or before the closing date and must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. in the Human Resource Services department. Applications/Resumes can be faxed to (843) 852-3640.
