Yes, that's right. In the eyes of the hiring system for the Biologist job, I have been deemed Eligible. I think this is one of many little steps in the process, but I'm so pleased to have made it past the initial screen. Here's the definition.
"Eligible - Application Referred to Selecting Official: Applicant's name has been sent to the selecting official for further evaluation and possible selection."
Ha! Me and 50 other nerds.
