What is a provisional posting?

A position is posted via a provisional posting when that position requires a Civil Service examination and there is not currently a valid eligible list. Any applicant who meets the qualifications of the title is welcome and encouraged to apply. The chosen candidate is then hired on a provisional basis. The next time that exam is offered the provisional employee must apply for, take, pass the exam, and be reachable on the eligible list to be eligible for appointment (i.e. continuing employment). If these conditions are not met, removal from the position is mandatory except in some limited circumstances set forth in law.
