Please click on a job title on MO Careers home page for additional information regarding assigned duties, minimum qualifications, and instructions regarding the application process. Not all jobs utilize the same process, so please read instructions carefully and submit ALL information requested by the indicated deadline. A posting may specify that you should be on a Merit Register, complete an agency-specific application, submit a resume, and/or be otherwise appointable. Use the contact information listed in the job posting for additional questions.

For Jobs Requiring Active Status on a Merit Register

Refer to the job posting for instructions on whether to submit an application through EASe or a paper application.

If your name is currently active on the appropriate register, you do not need to submit a new Merit application unless it has been more than 90 days since you last applied for the relevant job title and you have received additional education and/or experience, or if your name will expire from the register soon. You can check your active register status under Quick Links after logging into your EASe application.

For Jobs Requiring Applicants to be Appointable Under the Merit System
