625 Selection Sequence

For the first vacancy, the appointing official selects from among the 3 highest on the Hiring Worksheet who are available for the position to be filled. If more than one vacancy is available, eligibles not selected in filling the first vacancy and the next available eligible listed on the Hiring Worksheet are then considered. An eligible who has been considered 3 times for the same job category, and not selected, is not considered again for that job category and installation. However, the eligible’s name remains on the active register until considered 3 times for other job categories and installations for which the register is used (see 628.2, Retention on Register).
