One of my co-workers is resigning or retiring and I’m interested in applying for his/her position.
If the PC has recruited for this same job classification within the past year, we may already have an eligibility or hiring list from which we provide candidates to interview. Once we create an eligibility list, the list is valid for one year or until we no longer have enough interested candidates for interviews.
Hint: Whenever you see a job posting for a position you may be interested in, apply and go through the testing process. Even if you aren’t interested in the current position or you don’t want to leave your current job just yet, if another position becomes available within the next year, we will use this same hiring list. If you didn’t apply and test when the job was posted, you will not be eligible.
