Managerial Selection Process (MSP) Examinations 

Statement of Qualifications (SOQ)

Each MSP examination announcement contains evaluation criteria which outline the minimum qualifications for the position. To apply for any of these positions, a Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) must be submitted along with the State application. The SOQ is a discussion of how an applicant’s education and experience meet the evaluation criteria below and qualify them for the position. The SOQ serves as documentation of each candidate's ability to present information clearly and concisely in writing. You must include specific examples addressing each of the evaluation criteria listed below. Resumes, letters, and other materials will not be considered as your response to the SOQ.

Applicants must submit a CalHR STD 678: State of California Examination/Employment Application along with a Statement of Qualifications.

A resume will not be accepted in lieu of a Statement of Qualifications.
