A: To potentially work for the state of Florida without Selective Service registration, contact the specific agency of interest to inquire about their policies and whether they consider your circumstances, including the SIL letter, when making employment decisions. The Selective Service System Information Letter (SIL) you received may be taken into account, but individual agency policies vary.
