- Chrome (self-updating)
- Firefox versions currently supported by Mozilla
- Internet Explorer version 9 and later
- Safari versions currently supported by Apple
Additionally, you must create a new user account and Virginia State Application to apply for employment opportunities in this system. If you had a user account and application in the old system, you can no longer access that information or check the status of your application. If you applied for a job prior to April 21, 2015, your application will move through the normal recruitment process. The state agency recruiting for the position will review applications and notify you if your application will be moving forward in the recruitment process.
