A regular or
10-Day posting is a job vacancy announcement which, as its name indicates, is posted on COS for a minimum of 10 calendar days. These postings can be further designated into two distinct categories:
promotional vacancy is only open to current state employees with merit status, who are also known as internal mobility candidates; external candidates may not apply and cannot be considered. FFTL, interim, non-merit, and employees on initial probation do not have merit status and therefore are not eligible to be considered for promotional job advertisements. Part-time employees with merit status are only eligible for consideration for part-time internal mobility postings.
competitive vacancy is open to all candidates; anyone who meets minimum requirements may apply to competitive job postings, including internal mobility candidates.
