|CSC announces exam dates|
|The Civil Service Commission (CSC) will administer various examinations this year to screen prospective job applicants in government.|
The CSC will conduct the written Career Service Examinations (CSE), both for Professional and Sub-Professional levels, on April 14 and October 13, 2013. For the April 14 schedule, applications are being accepted at CSC Regional and Field Offices nationwide until February 28.
The CSE are general ability tests designed to measure verbal, analytical, numerical, and clerical skills. Passing the CSE entitles one to either a Professional or Sub-Professional eligibility which, along with education, experience and training requirements, is needed for permanent appointment to corresponding positions in the government career service.
It is open to Filipino citizens, regardless of educational attainment, who are at least 18 years old at the time of filing of application and who have not taken the same level of examination in less than three months. However, taking different levels of examination within the said period is allowed.
Other examinations to be administered for the year include the Foreign Service Officer Examination (FSOE) Qualifying Test and the Fire Officer Examination (FOE) on March 10; the Local Scholarship Program-Modified (LSP) Written Examination and the Penology Officer Examination (POE) on August 11.
The FSOE Qualifying Test will be conducted in collaboration with the Department of Foreign Affairs. It aims to recruit candidates for appointment to the position of Foreign Service Officer, Class IV to work for Philippine embassies and consulates.
The FOE results in the conferment of the Fire Officer Eligibility considered appropriate for appointment to second level ranks in the fire protection service and functionally related positions, except ranks under the Philippine National Police (PNP).
The LSP offers scholarship opportunities to qualified government employees.
The POE results in the conferment of the Penology Officer Eligibility considered appropriate for appointment to second level ranks in the jail and penology and to functionally related services, except ranks under the PNP.
The CSC advises interested applicants of the said government examinations to visit the CSC website at www.csc.gov.ph regularly for admission qualifications, application period, requirements, procedure, and other related information.
