About the Register


What is a Register?

A register is a list of applicant names who have been determined eligible to be hired for a specific job classification. For a Merit System agency to consider you for employment, your name must be included on the register for the job classification for which you would like to be considered. The Division of Personnel maintains the register of eligible names for each job classification and adds names of qualified applicants to those registers.

How do I get my name on the Register?

The first step is to complete an application using the appropriate process (Electronic Application System (EASe) or Paper Application).

You will be notified when eligibility has been determined and/or your name has been added to the register. If you are not eligible to be added to a register, you will receive notification from the Division of Personnel.

Can my name be removed from the Register?

Your name may be removed from the register for any of the following reasons:

  • If you fail to answer a Merit Agency's letter or if you fail to appear for an interview. In these circumstances, your name may be removed from the register for 90 days. The Division of Personnel will send you a letter via email telling you how your name can be placed back on the register.
  • If an audit of your qualifications is conducted to verify eligibility and you are determined ineligible or if your score is inaccurate.
  • If you change your postal or email address and fail to notify the Division of Personnel.
  • If you are hired for a permanent position for the job classification, a comparable job classification, or a higher paid job classification. You may send a written request to have your name placed back on the register for comparable or lower paid job classifications.  NOTE:  If you are hired to a Broadbanded Management job classification, your name will remain on the register for that job classification.
  • At the time of the register expiration (normally 12 months after the date your name is added to the register), you will be notified of the register expiration date when you receive your grade notice. Your grade notice will also inform you when you will need to submit a new application.
