CSE/R Additional Resources: Career Mobility Office & Training Requests


The Career Mobility Office (CMO) is funded by negotiated agreements among New York State, the Civil Service Employees Association, Inc. (CSEA), and the Public Employees Federation, AFL-CIO (PEF). The Career Mobility Office’s (CMO’s) mission is to promote a comprehensive and coordinated range of career development and workforce deployment services to New York State agencies and their employees.

As CMO is partially funded by PEF and other negotiating units, PEF relies on CMO to conduct trainings, workshops, and modules in an effort to utilize these resources, which are specifically tailored to the needs of New York State agencies and their employees. Additional information about CMO can be found via their information packet and the Career Mobility Office website.
