You Got the Job

1. The Offer

If you are successful in a job competition, the hiring manager will contact you to make a job offer and discuss the job. Take the opportunity to ask any outstanding questions you may have about the job. If you accept the job, a link to your official offer letter will be emailed to you. You must accept the offer by logging into your Career Centre in the Recruitment Management System (RMS) using the hyperlink in the email. In addition, you must provide your date of birth and social insurance number to the hiring manager. Depending on the job functions, the job offer may include information about completing the security screening process before the offer can be confirmed. Read the offer carefully and complete any instructions provided. 

2. Completion of Staffing Review Process

At the same time, regret notifications are sent to applicants who are unsuccessful for a job competition. An unsuccessful applicant may request feedback. Until the staffing review process is completed, we advise that you do not make any major job changes, such as quitting your current job.

Learn more about staffing reviews under Applicant Feedback.

3. Offer Confirmation

A confirmation letter will be sent to you when the staffing review process is complete and you have provided your social insurance number and date of birth. It is only at this point that the job offer is finalized and you are ready to start your new job. The confirmation letter will include instructions on how to complete and submit your onboarding documents. If you are a new employee, it will provide instructions on how to complete the oath of employment, submit your personal information for initiating the payroll and leave processes and additional information about working for the BC Public Service.
