State Register 
Personnel, who apply for a state position, must submit an application through the DOHR website located at http://www.tn.gov/hr. Follow the links to find the state on-line application. You can also access information about all state job class titles in the State of Tennessee’s classification system. If you wish to view information about “available jobs” for which applications are currently being accepted, follow the “Search Job Openings” link. For each job classification you apply for, your application will be evaluated to determine whether you meet the minimum qualifications required. A score is calculated for you based on a rating of your education and work experience. You will be notified of your rating score within a few weeks following the submission of your application. If DOHR deems you qualified and you receive a “rating score,” your name is placed on a list of eligible applicants for that job title. TEMA pulls this list of eligible applicants when filling a Career Service position vacancy. Position vacancies must be filled from among the top five eligible applicants who interview and are willing to accept the position.

Employment The hiring supervisor is responsible for notifying applicants who have been selected for employment regarding when and where to report for in-processing.
