If you identify keywords and/or make Job Type and/or Job Title selections, azstatejobs.gov will list only those jobs that meet the criteria you provide.

Step 3: You can target your job search by using one or all of the following three job search criteria:

  • Keywords  Type in a key word or words, such as accounting, and azstatejobs.gov will find and list all of the available jobs where the job description or job title contains the word(s) you typed.  Type in a specific agency code and azstatejobs.gov will find and list all of the available jobs in the specified agency.  You may find the agency code by clicking the Search by Agency link directly under the Keyword box.
