The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is covered under the State Merit System. The Office of Administration/Division of Personnel (OA/DP) administers the Electronic Application System. Visit the Division of Personnel’s web site at www.ease.mo.gov to apply.
If you qualify, you will receive a score based on your education and experience. If eligible, your name will be added to a register for the job classification. A register includes a list of names, ranked in score order. When DHSS has a vacancy in a county in which you are available, you will receive a letter asking if you wish to pursue the vacancy.
NOTE: Applicants must respond to letters received in the stated time frame or their name may be removed from that register.
