A binder of state JOB OPPORTUNITIES is located at the career center or state employment office. After you fill out the state merit exam application the state will determine wheather or not you are qualified for the job you are seeking. You can list several jobs preferences on the app. Make a copy of the application after you complete it because you may need to fill out another one later on. If found to be qualified the state will send you a notice when the written test is available and where. The test is multiple choice and may be 100 to 150 questions long. A score of 70 is passing. Depending on how many people are qualified and seeking that particular position you will be sent a notice for a personal interview. If you score in the top 10% you will be interviewed. However, depending on test scores they may only send out 20 or 30 notices. Not all of the people who are sent notices will respond which may increase your chances. If you are a veteran you will also be given five points veterans preference which can substantially improve your score. Good Luck!!!
Thanks

I would like to know about those particular questions, if you wouldn't mind. I just need some examples of the harder ones. I'm guessing it's going to be similar to a health department test with temps and times, do you have any idea?
