Advancement at the Board
The Board has a policy of filling vacant positions with
internal applicants, whenever possible. The job posting program gives
employees the opportunities to move into new job families, to explore
and master new skills and areas of expertise, and to assume positions
of greater responsibility as they progress in their careers.
Generally, employees must serve six months in their current
positions before applying for a new position, and must have a performance
(PMP) rating of "commendable" or better.
An employee may be selected for a promotion (that
is, filling a vacant position with a new set of duties at a higher
grade in a new career ladder) through this competitive process.
Vacancies are posted for a minimum of five days on a bulletin
board on the Martin Building concourse, on the Management Division's
Web page, and in a notebook in the Management Division's Recruiting
To apply for a posted job, complete a posting application
(available in the Management Division or on line) and submit it
to the Recruiting Section during the posting period.
The recruiter responsible for filling the job will interview
the applicant to determine eligibility. The hiring manager (or designated
staff member) will interview candidates who meet required minimum
