Jurisdictions or hiring/appointing authorities also have residency ordinances that impact the ranking and ordering of candidates.
The hiring authority is required to hire from the certified lists they receive. You will be notified in writing when your name is placed on a Certification List. Notifications may be by mail or email, be sure to carefully and completely follow any instructions on those notifications, failure to do so may result in your removal from the list. .
If your name is certified to an Appointing Authority, a certification notice will be sent to the mailing address you listed on your application for the LEE, or that you have updated with the CSC as necessary. This is why you MUST notify the CSC if your mailing address changes from the one you entered on your application.
If you receive a certification notice in the mail, you will be given five business days from the notice date to respond in writing to the AA that you are interested, or not interested, in the job. If you do not respond within this timeframe, your name will be removed from the certification and you will no longer be considered for appointment.
The selection process often takes six months or more because it is so involved, so please be patient.
Please Note: A candidate who is disqualified for a negative background investigation will be removed from the pool for all future certifications for any title.
For security reasons, changes cannot be made from telephone calls.
