What Happens if I’m Referred to the Hiring Department?
As you are referred to a department/agency for the final selection interview, a letter will be sent from the Human Resources Division giving you the department/agency contact name and telephone number to contact for an interview appointment. It is important that you respond within ten days of the date on that letter; failure to make contact may result in your removal from the eligible list.
It is also important to remember that you are allowed to waive or decline three job interviews before you will be removed from the eligible list. You will then have to retest once the recruitment is open again. If you do not want your name sent to a particular agency/department for the selection interview, you must mark that request on your online application or send the Human Resources Division written notice of your request (include title of position).
Also, Personnel Rules and Regulations require removal of your name from an eligible list if you refuse three job offers. If you are temporarily not available for work (for instance, for a few months due to surgery, family emergency, etc.) notify the Human Resources Division in writing so your name will not be certified to hiring departments.
