An eligible list of candidates will be based on the scores received on the examinations administered. Ensure that you return calls no later than 4:30 p.m. on the next business day after you receive a certification call from the Personnel Commission. Failure to call will result in your name not being included in a certification list. Final selection of appointees will be made from the top THREE RANKS of certified eligibles on the list, along with others such as transfer eligibles, reinstatement eligibles, etc. Any one of the people certified may be appointed to the vacant position, and the names of the persons not selected are returned to their respective eligibility list to be considered for the next vacancy.

Eligibility lists may be extended for up to one additional year. It is the candidate's responsibility to notify Personnel Commission of change of address/phone number for contact.
