Career Counseling Services

 

Career counseling services are available by appointment to individuals seeking state employment and to current employees seeking to expand their career opportunities.

Upon completion of an employment application, a counselor evaluates the candidate's experience, educational level, geographic preference, and salary requirements and advises the applicant of appropriate job titles.

Career Services also provides special assistance to Illinois veterans through the Veterans Outreach Program.

From its Chicago office, CMS also offers the Diversity Enrichment Program (DEP) headquartered in the James R. Thompson Center (JRTC). The Program is responsible for the recruitment of well-qualified candidates for employment in underutilized categories for State employment through targeted outreach events and applicant counseling and is a resource for all State agencies, boards and commissions to supplement their recruiting efforts and develop strategies for diversification.
