The Wonderful World of Civil Service

The Wonderful World of Civil Service

So, you’re thinking about taking a civil service exam and you want to better understand the process. Or, you’ve just passed an exam with flying colors and want information on the procedures that will govern the establishment of the list from your exam – or the way in which your agency or another agency will call candidates from that list.

Have we got a seminar for you! On Thursday, October 5, 2017, from 6 to 9pm, Organization of Staff Analysts’ Executive Director Sheila Gorsky will present a basic overview of civil exam and list issues, including:

  • Establishment of Lists

  • Provisionals

  • Promotional Exams

  • Open Competitive Exams

  • The “One-In-Three” Rule

  • Your Friend, The DP-72 Form

  • Considered, Not Selected (CNS)

  • Balance Not Reached (BLN)

  • No Longer Eligible (NLE)

  • Restorations

    If you are interested in participating in the seminar, please complete and return the coupon you can download here by September 28, 2017.
