For example, college education, how much college education are you talking about? What degree? Veteran's preference, are we talking about a person with MP training and experience, or are are we talking about someone who worked in supply? Academy training, what kind of academy training are we talking about? Massachusetts, federal, another state? This can of course go on, but I'll spare everyone. I think you get the picture.
I was in the top 3 of the list in my town for 2 consecutive tests. This is when MA HR started putting the civil service lists online (2000-2002). Then I got bumped buy a lad who was way down the list because he wasn't a resident. Come to find out, his DADDY had been on the job in that town for 20+ years!npd_323 said:Does anyone think another part of it is "who you know"
