The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is the agency charged with overseeing employers and job seekers in the state of Texas. Applicants seeking employment with state agencies must register for a job seeker account on WorkInTexas.com, a free public employment matching service offered by the TWC. You will need to enter personal and contact information, work history, skills and job search preferences. After successful registration, job seekers can view and apply for state jobs as well as submit "State of Texas Application for Employment" forms.
State of Texas Application for Employment
Applicants must fill out the state's Application for Employment form no matter which state department they are seeking employment with. For example, applicants applying for a position at the Office of Texas Secretary of State or the Texas Department of Criminal Justice must fill out the State of Texas application first, in addition to submitting any additional documents required by each specific agency. A separate application form is required for each position you are applying for. Each form must have an original signature as well as the correct job posting number. All submitted applications become public record.
