One reason may be that we are still in the hiring process. We review and screen every application that we receive which takes time. One of the advantages of applying online is that you can access the status of the job that you applied for at any time to see which step we are at in the hiring process. If your contact information has changed since sending your resume, and the hiring process has not reached the evaluation step be sure to provide the necessary updated information to the location where you submitted your application. If you have a contact name for the job competition, you can look the person up in the government directory. If you have applied to many job postings and are not getting invited to interviews, it may indicate that your resume is not expressing your skills and knowledge very well. See “Top Ten Interview Tips for Preparing for an Job Interview.”
The decision to interview may depend on a variety of factors, including your ranking against other candidates, the number of positions being filled and the number of people who applied.
The hiring manager will determine whether members of the public will be reimbursed for expenses. These decisions are made on a case by case basis. The hiring manager must balance the need to hire the best candidate with the need to make sound financial decisions. If you are contacted to participate in the selection process you can clarify your eligibility of reimbursement for travel expenses with the Hiring Manager.
Absolutely not. One of the advantages of working in the Public Service is that we are a large organisation where employees can move and develop their careers across many ministries. For example, you may begin a career in communications in one ministry and later work for another ministry in a different operational role, such as managing a government program. People who are interested in career mobility can move within and between career fields.

If an officer closes his/her checking account and does not notify the Payroll Unit the officers' salary will continue to be deposited into that account. If this happens,  the officer must wait until the financial institution returns the money back to the Treasury Department which can take up to 2-4 business days. Once the Treasury Department is notified that the monies have been returned, a cheque may be issued to the officer.

Cross out any mistakes. Do not use correction fluid. If you make more than three mistakes on any line or do not provide a clear signature in section 6, you will need to fill a new form.

Yes. We know that in order for our programme to be successful officers must have confidence that conversations will remain confidential. No records of visits or counseling sessions will be placed on the officers' personal file. In circumstances where the counselor believes an officer may pose a risk to him/herself or others, or if the court mandates it, our counselors are required to report the situation to the relevant authorities.

No. Your application will be saved, but you must submit an application each time you want to apply for a position with the Government of the Virgin Islands.
Yes. Signing your appraisal form indicates that you have reviewed the appraisal form and discussed it with your supervisor not that you agree or accept it. If you disagree with your rating, the first thing you do is discuss the matter with your appraiser (supervisor). Explain your objections clearly and provide evidence to support your position. If you and your appraiser are unable to reach an agreement you should inform the Department of Human Resources of your objections. You can do this by making a note on your objections under the Employee Comments section of the appraisal form. The matter will then be reviewed by the Performance Management Unit.
