Dear Corrections Family:
While talking to staff in Boonville Correctional Center recently, a member of the personnel team mentioned that some employees are still struggling with our transition from the merit system. Specifically, she said, they are uncertain about the process of applying for new positions and promotions.
We want to help remove any barriers you might face in starting, changing or advancing your career in corrections. So let’s try to clear up some of the confusion.
The most important thing to remember is that you don’t have to be on a register to get a job. You can choose to be added to a register to be considered for future opportunities, but it isn’t required. If you are on a register, you don’t have to wait for confirmation before applying.
To guide you through the application process, the Office of Personnel has provided answers to frequently asked questions.

Thank you for all you do to help improve lives and make our communities safer. Happy Veterans Day, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
