APPLICATION FOR EXAMINATION
This is a special Microsoft Word 97 version of the Division of Personnel Application for
Examination form. The form is equivalent to the standard Division of Personnel green Application
form. An Employment History Supplement sheet is available if you need additional space. These
forms should print satisfactorily on most printers; however, make sure all the checked (X) boxes print
properly. In most case, you can tab from field to field. We recommend that you print a blank form to
use as a draft. Check your responses very carefully. These two instruction pages
are not part of the
application and should not be submitted with the completed form. If you have any questions, please
call our office.
Information about testing, announced job titles, testing locations, and the employment process are
available on our web site at: www.state.wv.us/admin/personel . The web site also has a map of WV
counties to assist you in determining your availability area. You may also obtain information by
calling our office and speaking with a counselor. If you are planning to take a written examination,
TAKE your completed application to the examination center when reporting for testing. Do not mail
an application for a written examination to our office. Applications for jobs which do not require a
written test should be mailed or delivered to the address shown on the form. A photocopy of the
application with signature and current date is acceptable. A resume cannot be substituted for the
application. Resumes and other supporting documents may be enclosed with the completed application.
Availability for Interview and Appointment.
In order to process your application, we must know the counties in which you are willing to
interview and accept employment. Space has been provided on the Application for you to indicate from
1 to a maximum of 10 counties in which you are definitely
available for work. DO NOT MARK
MORE THAN 10 COUNTIES. Do not mark a county that would require you to change residences, if
you are not willing to re-locate. If you mark more than 10 your application may be rejected. Mark
” ONLY if you are certain you will accept work in any county in the State. A printable
map is available on our web site showing the location of all counties.

Proof of degree(s), major fields of study, specific course work, license(s), vocational or other
required training must be attached to the completed application. An applicant's test may be scored but
will not be considered for employment until the required documents are received. Copies of documents

All employment listed on the Application is subject to verification. Be sure to include all relevant
experience (including military experience) in the Employment History section. You MUST indicate
