Merit-Based Recruitment

The Division of Public Health uses the Merit-Based Recruitment and Selection Plan to fill positions subject to the State Personnel Act external link (GS-126) with highly-qualified individuals. Consideration will be given to applicants who possess an equivalent combination of related training and work experience commensurate with the minimum job requirements. Only applicants who meet the minimum training and experience requirements will be referred for consideration, unless a trainee appointment is included in the job announcement.

Posting and Application Process

  • Positions are posted for a minimum of five (5) workdays and the list of postings is subject to change on a daily basis.
  • Each job vacancy announcement includes a closing date for accepting applications for employment.
  • A NC State Government Application for Employment (PD-107) external link must be received in the Personnel Office by 5:00 p.m. on the closing date.
  • Applications received after the closing date will not be accepted unless the position is re-posted.
  • Applications must be completed in full detail (listing "see resume" in employment history is not acceptable) and must be signed.
  • Failure to complete the application fully, including signature, may result in an individual not being considered for the vacant position.
  • Applicants may not apply to three positions on one application.
  • Each position requires a separate application which includes the correct position title and position number.
  • Resumes may be attached to the application form as supplemental information, but will not be used in lieu of an application.
  • Signed faxed applications will be accepted.


Salary ranges reflect the minimum and maximum rates for the pay grade of the job class (view the State of North Carolina salary schedules external link by effective July 1, 2012). Hiring ranges reflect the maximum salary that can be paid. Salaries are based on the selected applicant's relevant training and experience, labor market considerations, the need to maintain internal salary equity, available funding and other applicable policies.
