Our objective is to hire the best person for the job, so competition is important. If you are not successful in getting a job immediately, your name will remain on the eligibility list for consideration for any future vacancies that occur until the list expires. If you are not hired during that time, you must wait for another recruitment and apply for that position. It is a good idea to keep your original notifications from the Human Resources Department. This way you will know what eligibility lists you are on.
