The Hiring Process

There are five main steps in the hiring process:

  1. The Public Service Commission advertises jobs and accepts applications until the closing date indicated in the job posting.
  2. The Public Service Commission, with the employer, screens applications to identify applicants with qualifications that match the job requirements.
  3. The Public Service Commission may invite applicants to participate further in the selection process (an interview and possibly additional assessments such as tests or presentations).
  4. The Public Service Commission conducts reference checks on the top candidates after the interview/assessment process.
  5. The Public Service Commission offers the successful candidate the job after the interview panel has made their selection.
