At that time, the employee must be terminated for at least 30 days before they can be rehired in another extra help position.

Civil service openings are sometimes advertised online; however, you should test for any EIU civil service classification in which you are interested before a vacancy occurs. Read about the hiring process to learn how the hiring system works for Civil Service.
