Determination, coupled with persistence, will surely help you in your journey to becoming civil servants,” said CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles.

Professional and Subprofessional Eligibilities

Applicants who passed the CSE Professional Level are granted with the Career Service Professional Eligibility, which is a requirement for permanent appointment to first and second level positions in the government covering professional, technical, scientific, and managerial positions and requires at least four years of college studies.

On the other hand, Subprofessional Level passers shall be conferred the Career Service Subprofessional Eligibility, which shall be appropriate for permanent appointment to first level positions such as clerical, trades, crafts, and custodial service positions requiring less than four years of college studies.

However, the CSC said that eligibility alone does not guarantee employment in government service. Applicants must meet all the qualification standards of the position, which comprise education, training, experience, and eligibility.
