I took two civil service tests way back when (social worker assistant II and social worker assistant III) and got hired under the SWA II title. I recently found out that some of the service coordinators in the agency I work for who were on the list for SWA III were being promoted, so I started to ask around. Turns out, I asked the right person (my supervisor's supervisor). She put in the good word for me, followed up constantly for a few weeks, and the promotion came through. It's a difference of a few thou a year - worked out to almost $60 more in my paycheck. Ka-ching!
happy dance - my raise came through!
