Editor’s note: Civil Service Fact vs. Fiction answers employee questions about Civil Service/Academic Professional issues. Got a question for UIC Human Resources about Civil Service? Academic Professional issues? E-mail, and APAC News will attempt to get your question answered.

QUESTION: IF I’m currently an Academic Professional (AP) employee, can I apply for Civil Service positions?

RESPONSE FROM UIC Human Resources: Yes.  APs have always been able to apply for Civil Service vacancies, and the Job Analysis and Conversion Project has not changed that fact.

AN AP who applies for a Civil Service vacancy must meet all posted requirements for the open position including, in some cases, testing or verification of credentials and relevant work experience.  If the AP applicant is selected by the Hiring Manager as the preferred candidate, is offered the position, and accepts, the AP will need to resign their AP appointment and will be added to the Civil Service personnel system concurrently.
