Not Eligible 

Unfortunately, you are not eligible for this position due to one of the reasons listed below. For additional information why your status is reflecting “Not eligible”, you may email COSHelp@ky.gov or call 502-564-8030 for assistance.

                • Not Eligible for Consideration

You will receive an email communication explaining why your application could not be sent to the hiring agency.

                • Not Eligible for Promotional Vacancy

You applied to a position that is only open to current merit employees.  If you believe you actually have merit status, you may email COSHelp@ky.gov or call 502-564-8030 for assistance.

                • Not Eligible Due to Reemployment

Your application was not sent to the hiring agency due to the existence of a reemployment candidate on the eligible list.
State law dictates that reemployment candidates have priority over all other applicants in the hiring process.  If the reemployment candidate declines a job offer for an advertised position, the agency may request the applications of all other eligible applicants.  However, you are not specifically notified when the updated eligible list is sent to the hiring agency.  Your method of notification is to periodically check your Job Submission Status to see if your status for the particular vacancy changes to 'Application sent to hiring agency.'

Pending Hiring Agency Review 

Application sent to hiring agency. Submission of an application to the hiring agency is not a confirmation that you meet
minimum requirements for the position.  Nor is it a guarantee for an interview.


Your application was withdrawn from consideration due to either administrative action, job cancellation by the hiring agency or at your request.
