Examinations administered by the Human Resources Division are job-related and designed to test the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to do the essential functions of the job. Carefully read the job announcement and job description, and study material you feel would directly relate to the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities. For example, if two of the requirements for a job are performing mathematical calculations and interpreting regulations, some of the examination questions will probably include math and reading comprehension.

The examination schedule is determined in advance, and noted in the job announcement. Because of the complex coordination required to obtain meeting room space, or these dates cannot be rescheduled.

SCOE seeks the highest qualified applicants. After you participate in the examination, you will be notified by mail of the examination results.

If you are recommended for an oral interview by the hiring manager, you will be contacted by Human Resources to schedule an interview appointment. If you are recommended for employment, a job offer will be made to you and the H.R. Specialist will answer any questions you may have. You will be required by law to be fingerprinted and participate in a test for exposure to Tuberculosis, and will be required to pass a pre-employment physical examination and drug screening.
