Applying for State of Minnesota jobs

How to get started

The state has launched a new online job application system. This new system, called Recruiting Solutions, will make it easier to search and apply for state jobs. 

Go to Recruiting Solutions at the MMB website and search for state jobs. There, you will be able to:

  • Upload a unique and tailored resume for each job.
  • Automatically fill in portions of the application from your uploaded resume.
  • View a progress bar to see what steps remain.
  • Track your application and receive status updates throughout the recruitment process.
  • Reset your user ID and password automatically.
  • Receive automated alerts for new jobs.

Develop and post your resume

Check out the resume writing tips and sample resumes available on the State Job site before you begin to ensure you have all the necessary information at hand. We strongly encourage you to follow the Application and Selection Process outlined on the MMB website, which has specific instructions on how to enter your resume.
