A: CINI - Human Resources Team may remove your name from the PSRS for volume-management purposes and you may receive a notification stating that you have been screened-out.

Your name may be removed permanently from the PSRS for one of the following reasons:
  • You have been found qualified and do not need to undergo any of the assessments again.
  • You have been exposed to the evaluation tools and have failed to meet the essential qualifications. Therefore, your application will no longer be considered as part of the selection process.
  • What is random selection?
A: 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.

  • How is this sub-sample of applicants determined?
A: 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 PSRS, candidates who meet these criteria are identified and the sub-sample is randomly selected from that group.

TO NOTE:
  • All communication relating to this process, including email correspondence, may be used in the assessment of qualifications.
  • Random selection will be used to identify which applicants will be assessed in this appointment process.
