Applying to an Exam for a Future Vacancy


Some vacancies require an applicant to take an exam (either online or in-person) before they can apply. In order to be considered for a vacancy that requires an exam, you must first apply to the exam posting and take the exam.

After you take an online exam, your experience and training will be evaluated. If you qualify, you will receive an email containing a score and its expiration date. You will also be added to a list of other eligible applicants.

If the job title requires you to take a written exam, your experience and training will be evaluated to determine if you qualify for the job title. If you do qualify, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to schedule the exam.

Once you have your score, please feel free to apply to as many vacancies as you wish prior to your score's expiration.

The exam does not count as an application to a vacancy.
