Found a few jobs that I am very interested in. I would like to join the government/county offices. I am struggling to understand their hiring process.

Example: On the local state website, there is a posting for job A.
The job listing state that non state employee might need a current grande from CMS.
The posting states that it is EXAM ONLY.
Apparently one need to apply for an open competitive grade if they have never worked for the state/government etc..
but the actual title/job states that this is a closed exam that they run only when there is enough candidates etc..
Also, there are similar posting with the same title/grade/exam but with a different letter at the end. such as: office balbla 1 is open for exam but office blabla1E is not open.
Anyone knows if I should take the 1 test anyway?
With 2 international degrees (not really related: Arts degrees) and 7 years work experience, basically does anyone on here has advice on how to proceed to have my things in order a/ for when the right job gets posted b/ be able to apply and land a job I am interested in.
