Civil servants are employed by local, state, and federal governments. The Civil Service exam, based on the location of the position, may only be available either one or two times per year. The Civil Service exam becomes a requirement when job applicants apply for specific government jobs within a government agency or department.
Note, the modern version of the Civil Service test is only required for only certain government civil service positions; this is discussed further on in this article.
Understanding US citizenship requirements is important if you want to navigate the naturalization process successfully. Use this guide to determine if you are eligible to become a US citizen.
How to Become a United States Citizen
U.S. citizenship is first and foremost derived from one’s birthplace. People who are born within the United States boundaries become subject to the laws and jurisdiction of the United States as citizens from birth. Those born within territories held by the United States may be citizens at birth but also may be subject to residency requirements.
Those born in American Samoa and Swains Island are generally considered nationals but not regarded as citizens of the United States.
Use AFOQT practice tests (updated for 2021) to prepare for the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) - a test taken by applicants who want to become an Officer in the United States Air Force.
