For preferred service positions, here's how the rest of the hiring process works:
For applicants who meet the minimum qualifications and complete the application, you will receive notice that you have been placed on a list of eligible candidates which has been provided to the hiring agency for their review. From the date of this notice, the hiring manager must fill the position within 30 days.
During the 30 day window, the hiring manager must select a minimum of 3 candidates from the list to interview face to face (second round).
If you are selected, you will receive an email, asking you to contact them to schedule an interview appointment.
If you are not contacted within the 30-day window, then you can assume you were not selected to participate in the second round.
Note: When hiring for executive service positions, the 30 day timeline is not required.
