Those who have been texted should wait patiently till further notice, they’re working on step by step. Any applicant who has been called is done and should prepare for the interview or workshop.
REASON WHY GSS CALL APPLICANTS
The reason why they call is that some applicants may not be available during the exercise, though the applicant has applied for the position. In addition, they also call to confirm your availability because some applicants may choose an area far from where he or she comes from, but might face problems during the journey. They only want applicants to work at a nearby catchment area or an area not far from the applicant’s hometown.
