When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, but to an inventory for future vacancies.
As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.
Your application in this inventory will be active for 90 days. A notice that your application is about to expire will be posted to the "My jobs menu" of your account 7 days before the end of your active period.
If you do not take action, your application will no longer be active and therefore no longer considered for this inventory.
Should your application become inactive while the process is still open, a notice will be posted to your account indicating that your application has expired.
You may select the link "Update my Inventory Status" to reaffirm your interest. If your application expires, you can re-
submit your application at any time while the inventory process is still open.
Please provide a valid e-mail address as correspondence will be sent via e-mail whenever possible.
