How does Civil Service determine if I qualify for the position I applied for?

Civil Service staff reviews your application to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications for the position. This includes any required education, experience, license, and/or certification. It is very important that you complete the application thoroughly.

Your qualifications will be evaluated based on the information you provide on the application and supplements (if applicable). Therefore, be sure to include paid and voluntary work experience. Also include other information that is relevant to the job, such as licenses, professional affiliations, classes you have taken, training you have received and all other special qualifications.

Large numbers of applications for posted positions are received. Consequently, the application review process can take several weeks. Please be patient. We want to give each application the consideration it deserves. You will be notified by email of your status for each position applied for.
