6. What happens if I accept a term position?

A person with a priority entitlement who accepts a term position will continue to be identified for job opportunities for which they may be qualified until the end of the entitlement period, or until they accept an indeterminate position.

7.What does it mean when a person with a priority entitlement self-refers?

Self-referral is when persons with a priority entitlement identify themselves to a department or an agency as having the right to priority consideration for a job opportunity for which the Priority Information Management System has not identified them. Once persons with a priority entitlement identify themselves as requesting priority consideration for a job opportunity, they are entitled to the same priority consideration as if they had been identified by the system.

The priority portal provides you with access to your priority profile. To learn more about it, review the Priority Portal page.
