Career opportunities

As part of the service goal of the Standing Committee on Government Lawyers, we would like to make you aware of an electronic bulletin board for job opportunities within government service. This is part of the ISBA job placement bulletin board already in existence, but with a special subsection for government job opportunities. These postings are for those attorneys who are already in government service and may be looking for another government job, or for those persons who are not currently in government service but would like to be.

You can log on to the ISBA Web site at <>. From there, you can access the government employment opportunities listing by clicking on the ISBA "CareerNet/ Clerkship" listing on the left side of the screen under the "Marketplace Section" on the ISBA's Web site homepage. After entering the CareerNet screen, simply scroll down to the "Government" listing on the left side and click on "Government."

If you are not currently employed by the State of Illinois or if you are employed in an office or agency not under the jurisdiction of the Governor, you will be required to complete an application with the Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) once you have an indication that you will be the successful candidate for a position with an administrative agency under the Governor. The hiring process may move more quickly if you complete the CMS application ahead of time. To obtain such an application, known as "ACMS 100," call either 312/814-3350 or 217/782-7110. If you are a veteran, call 312/814-6968 or 217/524-1313.
