Editor's Note: Each year the Federal
Government attracts numerous college
graduates who seek positions in Uncle
Sam's vast network of public admin-
istration. This story is an attempt to l
describe some phases of the operation
of the merit system.
Doors to careers composed of hun-
dreds of varied activities may bez
opened by joining forces-without a1
uniform-with the Federal Govern-t
ment through civil service examina-
Out-of-door occupations as well as
desk jobs and professional and scien-
tific pursuits involving research
problems and the actual operation
of industrial plants are open underI
the Commission's competitive exam-
inations for entrance appointment to
all citizens of the United States who
meet the admission requirements.
During the 12 months which ended
June, 1940, entrance appointments
were made to approximately 68,000 of
the available 727,000 positions. Job
appointments may be made any-
where in the United States or her
territories with almost one-half of
all positions being in the Post Office
About one-seventh, however, of all
civil service positions are for appoint-
ments to jobs in the Washington
headquarters of Federal agencies.
And here is where the opportunities
for the college man and woman shine.
The U.S. Civil Service Commission
bulletin points out that since "the
majority of the positions at Wash-.
ington are administrative, * profes-
sional, sub-professional, scientific, or
clerical in character, a college edu-
cation is more frequently required in
examinations for positions at Wash-
ington than in those for positions
Exams Test Ability
A general procedure for securing
positions is followed in most cases.
From time to time the Commission
holds competitive examinations to
obtain lists of persons who are qual-
ified for the work of particular
groups of Government positions.
These exams use carefully tested
methods for measuring ability and
are graded on a fair and accurate
Appointments to positions of the
type for which the examination was
held are made by Government agen-
cies, as vacancies occur, from the
names at the top of the list-all
names of those passing the exam
having been listed in the order of
the grades or "ratings."
