Duties Summary:

Provide employment services for a full range of clients involving job placement, job development, employer relations and vocational counseling and guidance; or develop and negotiate on-the-job training contracts for clients; or provide special employer representative activities and fact-finding required for alien employment certification; and perform other related duties as assigned.

Minimum Qualification Requirements:

To qualify, you must meet all of the following requirements:

EDUCATION: A bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year college or university.

SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE: One and one-half years of experience in one or a combination of Type A or Type B below:

Type A: Progressively responsible full-time experience in the field of employment service, personnel administration or related fields which involved one or more of the following duties and responsibilities:
1) obtaining applications for employment and assessing applicants' qualifications in terms of skills, knowledge, physical and/or mental suitability for employment or employment training;
2) determining job content and requirements;
3) developing methods and techniques for the improvement of personnel or employment programs; and
4) referring applicants to suitable jobs.

This experience must have provided applicants with knowledge of various kinds of occupations and occupational requirements, employment interviewing or counseling, or personnel management principles, practices, and techniques.

Examples of qualifying experience are work as an employment interviewer, employment counselor or personnel specialist in a public or private employment agency, vocational counseling or guidance work, or other pertinent personnel management work.

Type B: Progressively responsible professional experience in the field of social work or related fields which involved assisting youths or adults with personal, social and emotional problems toward their resolution.

This experience must have involved counseling or guidance in situations where youths or adults had moderately difficult to difficult problems of grasping or understanding the nature of their problems, choosing between various courses of action possible, adjusting to environmental conditions and/or acquiring or sustaining proper motivation.

Examples of qualifying experience are work as a social caseworker or group worker in a public or private agency, parole-probation counselor, student counselor, or religious counselor.

Non-Qualifying Experience: Work experience which is not primarily concerned with employment interviewing, counseling, or guidance, or personnel work is not qualifying for these positions. For example, most work experience as an office manager or in a supervisory or managerial position includes responsibility for personnel functions. However, if the paramount responsibility of the position is not concerned with employment services or personnel recruitment and placement work, or counseling or guidance, such experience is not considered qualifying.

Applicants must have had one year of experience comparable to the Employment Service Specialist II level in the State service, i.e. the full semi-professional level or advanced professional trainee.
The Employment Service Specialist II performs a variety of employment service functions ranging from the simple to moderately complex which do not require the services of a fully trained journeyman specialist; and performs other related duties as assigned.
