The steps of the selection process vary depending upon the position. For example, an application screening and selection interview may be all that is required. On the other hand, applicants may be required to pass a written exam, a performance test (e.g. typing, operation of heavy equipment) or an oral board presentation. Decisions about the selection process are made by the hiring department and Human Resources when the position is opened.
The Human Resources Specialist assigned to the recruitment reviews the application submitted to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications and special requirements as stated on the job announcement.
Include not only paid work experience, but all other experience which may apply to the job, e.g.., volunteer experience, licenses, professional affiliations, classes you have taken, training you have received and any other special qualifications. Failure to include all information requested could result in the rejection of your application. With accurate and complete information, the Human Resources Specialist will be able to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications for the job.
You will receive electronic notification that your application has been received. Applicants meeting the minimum qualifications will be placed on an eligibility list and will have their applications forwarded to the hiring department for review and creation of an interview list. The Human Resources Department then contacts the candidates selected for interviews. Electronic notifications regarding the outcome of the selection process are sent to those who interview.
An eligibility list is established after a recruitment has been conducted and contains those applicants who meet the minimum qualifications for a specific position. Usually, eligibility lists expire 90 days from the date the position closes; however, the Human Resources Department reserves the right to extend the life of an eligibility list or expire the list early.
