Step Three: Take the Civil Service Exam
Taking the Civil Service Exam is the most important part of the hiring process. A passing score is 80, but in order to receive an invitation to the interview you will need to score in the high 80’s to 90’s. The exam consists of two main sections: Verbal & Clerical Abilities. There are also specialty test that can be taken at local facilities, depending on the career you choose.
