Testing for most civil service
jobs happens only periodically and sometimes as little as once every two years.
An exam may consist of one test or a number of different tests. Note that
once you pass the test and you're on a civil service list, you'll be interviewed
to determine if you receive a job offer. Make the most of your opportunity
