PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN INFORMATION THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR EXAMINATION SCORE AND RANK ON THE ELIGIBILE LIST:

The purpose of this Supplemental Questionnaire (SQ) is to describe your training and experience as they relate to the knowledge, skills, and abilities linked to the essential functions of this 5148 Water Operations Analyst recruitment  (please refer to the job announcement for a more detailed description of these knowledge, skills and abilities). Only the information you provide in your answers to these questions will be evaluated to determine your score in the selection process for this position. No attachments or additional documents such as resumes, cover letters, or employment applications will be considered (i.e. Writing “see resume” or “N/A” is not a sufficient response). The SQ will be presented to an expert review panel for an assessment and will be used as part of the examination process to determine candidates' score and rank on the eligible list. This Supplemental Questionnaire will account for 100% of the total weight of the candidates’ final score. Insufficient or non-responsive answers to the SQ may result in disqualification from the recruitment process. The responses that you provide to this questionnaire should be consistent with the information on your application, and are subject to verification. If there is a question regarding experience that you do not have, try to include examples of similar experience that would demonstrate your ability or potential to perform the specific function.

It is suggested that you review the questions before starting, prepare your thorough narrative-style responses in a word processing document, and then paste them into the questionnaire. Responses should be sufficiently detailed to assist in evaluating your qualifications for this position. Please limit responses to one page unless otherwise instructed. Again, please be complete and specific in answering the questions as your score will be based on this information. We have also provided the following link for tips on how to best prepare a SQ response.
