Hunterdon County occasionaly hosts the Clerical Assessment Program (CAP) testing services, for the New Jersey Department of Personnel who administers the testing. Please check this page again for upcoming test schedules or visit the NJ DOP website for their schedule. This program is open to all residents of Hunterdon County.
After taking this clerical examination, you will be considered for a period of one year, for any future clerical job openings (within the State of New Jersey), for which you meet the requirements. These requirements may include residency, experience, special skills, job location preferences, minimum salary, and test scores.
To be eligible for jobs that require typing, data entry or stenography, a passing performance test score is required. Demonstration of these skills may increase your job opportunities.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
After you have taken the written clerical exam, to call (609) 292-6593 to schedule typing, data entry and/or stenography tests.
If you require any auxiliary aid or ADA accommodation to take a test, call (908) 788-1114.
If you wish to claim civil service veterans preference rights and you are not registered with DOP as a veteran, you must also bring a copy of your DD214 discharge papers with you.
Remember, you are not registering for one particular title or job location; job seekers may register for a number of titles and locations simultaneously by completing one application. Applicant scores will be entered into a registration "pool." When a vacant State, county, or municipal position becomes available, candidates are selected from the appropriate pool based on their experience, test scores, special skills, residency, minimum salary requirements, and job location preferences.
Eligible applicants will remain in the "pool" for a maximum of one year. You may not take the test more than once per year.
