Random selection will be used to identify which applicants will be assessed from this inventory.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Some advertisements state that random selection may be used to identify which applicants will be assessed during the appointment process. What is random selection?
Random selection is a strategy that is sometimes used to manage applicant volume. It identifies a sub-sample of applicants by applying the element of chance at some point during the appointment process, using criteria identified by the hiring organization.
2. How is this sub-sample of applicants determined?
To determine the sub-sample of applicants, the hiring organization identifies the following:
- criteria that candidates must meet; and
- the number of candidates to be selected.
With the assistance of an electronic system that contains information on all applicants, candidates who meet these criteria are identified and the sub-sample is randomly selected from that group. The Public Service Resourcing System - the electronic system used to advertise job opportunities within the Public Service of Canada, and receive and select applications - performs the random selection function.
Preference will be given to veterans and to Canadian citizens, in that order.
Information on the preference to veterans
