How does the department determine whom to hire?
After candidates on a certification list advise the department that they are available to be considered for the job, the top 10 ranked candidates will participate in the department's internal selection process. In many cases a department's internal selection process is an interview sometimes supplemented with a practical test, at which time candidates can discuss their qualifications as they relate to the specific position being filled.
