First Time Applicants

If this is the first time you are applying using the online job application, create an account and select a username and password. Please note that applicants must have their own email address to apply.

Create an Application

After your account has been established, you can build a profile in CAPPS Recruit. This will allow you to create an employment application to apply for TCEQ jobs. See how.

Application Requirements

Only online applications are only accepted and only for current available positions.


If you apply for positions for which the minimum qualifications require specific coursework, upload a clear photocopy of your official college transcript(s) with your employment application. If we are unable to verify the required coursework and number of hours, we cannot give you credit for them. See instructions on how to attach documents.
