THE Civil Service Commission in Davao Region (CSC-Davao) wants at least 20,000 individuals to take the Career Service Examination after removing the quota for the number of applicants.

Regional director Cyril-Nathan SM. Eamiguel said on Wednesday that CSC-Davao is accepting all eligible applicants who want to take the exam, emphasizing that they are no longer limiting the number of examinees.

“We are willing to accommodate everyone who is willing to take the examination. What is important is that they are able to file their applications on or before June 21,” Eamiguel said during the Wednesday Media Forum.

The CSC-Davao targets at least 3,000 applicants from the field offices in Davao del Sur, Davao del Norte, Davao de Oro, and Davao Oriental, which is beside the Davao City target.

Those who reserved a slot through the online link provided by CSC-Davao would still need to make an appearance at their respective field offices. Eamiguel said this is in order to verify the information of the applicants.

“Tanawon namo ang picture na gi-present with their valid ID (We will verify their photo and valid ID). Mag affix pud sila sa ilang signature and mag attest sila nga (They also need to affix their signature and attest that) all the statements contained in the application form are true and correct,” Eamiguel said.

“Katong gina-ingon nato na online applications, hopefully ma-establish nato na soon but in the meantime, online reservation of slots lang sa (Hopefully we will have an online application soon but for now, we only have an online reservation of slots),” he added.

However, the Davao City field office only accepts walk-in applicants, specifically 500 applicants per day at SM Lanang Premier.

As of March 30, chief human resource specialist Evelyn Yparraguirre, said around 3,000 individuals have already applied at the Davao City Field Office since the application period began on May 22.

The deadline is on June 21, 2023. The requirements include CS Form 100, original and machine copy of a valid ID, four pieces of identical passport-size photo with full name tag and signature, and an examination fee of Php 500.

In the past years, Yparraguirre said the passing rate of the Career Service Examination is an average of 12 percent of the total examinees. ICM
