What are the steps or stages of a typical selection process?
The steps of the selection process vary depending upon the position. For example, an application screening and selection interview may be all that is required. Certain positions may require the applicant to pass a written exam. Performance tests may also be required for positions requiring certain skills such as typing or the operation of heavy equipment.

Decisions about the selection process are made by the hiring authority and Human Resources when the position opens. The final outcome of the selection process is the creation of a list of qualified candidates. This is called an eligibility list and is given to the hiring authority for consideration. The hiring authority is free to contact anyone on the eligibility list for an interview.
