The CSC said the new Subprofessional eligibles are qualified to enter the first level of government service, while the Professional eligibles may join the first and second levels. The first level, the CSC elaborated, includes clerical, trades, crafts, and custodial service positions that involve non-professional or sub-professional work requiring less than four years of college studies. In contrast, the second level covers professional, technical, and scientific positions up to Division Chief level that involve professional, technical or scientific work requiring at least four years of college studies.

The CSC, however, clarified that possessing a Professional or a Subprofessional eligibility is one of the requirements to be able to join the government. A civil service eligible, the CSC stressed, must also meet the education, experience, training, and competency requirements for permanent appointment to a government career service position.
