The information below was sent in an email to all occupational and physical therapists in June 2014 in regards to the civil service appointment process for OTs and PTs:
Earlier this week, I sent you an email clarifying some of the issues in the Department of Education's letter relating to your appointment from the recently established civil service list. Submission of the application, cover letter and resume is the next step in the civil service appointment process.
For your convenience, we have worked with the Department of Education to partially complete the application forms for both therapist titles with some of the suggested responses. You will need to fill in the information that is specific to you.
Please note, you will not be penalized if you already submitted your form and provided information that is different than the suggested responses or if you left some information blank because you were unsure of the answers.
We have also created for you a sample resume and sample cover letter.
The Department of Education will also accept responses sent by email to AskAQuestionAboutCivilServiceExaminations@schools.nyc.gov or by fax to 718-935-5368. Fax and email responses must be received by June 27, 2014.
Please remember, it is imperative that you send your cover letter and resume within the timeframe specified in the letter. If you mail your cover letter and resume, they must be sent to the address in the letter and postmarked no later than Friday, June 27, 2014. If you send them by fax or email, they must be received by June 27.
