Read the announcement thoroughly, submitting an application packet without all required documentation will prevent you from being further considered.
For all Civil Service recruitments the examination process will be specified in the job announcement. Applicants will be notified approximately two weeks after the closing date of the announcement whether or not they have been selected to participate in the examination process.
Examinations may include written tests, personal qualifications, physical or performance tests, or evaluations of experience. They may also include interviews, or any suitable evaluation of fitness, or any combination of such tests. Each examination shall include one or more of the above mentioned examination options.
The examination announcement includes a list of all parts of the examination, minimum passing scores, applicant limit, and weight assigned to each part of the examination.
A candidate who feels that the scope, content, or practicality of any part of an examination is unfair may file an examination protest in writing with the Civil Service Officer within five working days immediately following the administration of the exam.
Exam scores are released to candidates following the examination protest period. Candidates will receive letters from the Civil Service Officer notifying them of their scores.
Candidates who pass the examination(s) are placed on an eligible register. Eligible registers remain in effect for 1 year.
Departments request the certification of an eligible register as vacancies occur. When the Civil Service Officer receives a certification request from a manager, a list of the top three candidates from the eligible register are sent to the hiring authority.
The hiring department then interviews the candidates and makes their final selection from any one of the top three candidates.
The application and examination process takes approximately 4-8 weeks to complete depending on the position and the complexity of the examination(s).
