I recently applied for a HR position and received the following message from USAJobs Application Status:
Eligible - Application Not Referred to Selecting Official
What exactly does it mean?

Hi, Paulina.
Did you apply for a Department of State Civil Service position? If so, applicants who are referred to the Selecting Official are those determined to be the most qualified candidates. If you were not referred to the Selecting Official, that would mean that your candidacy will not go forward. It is important to note that, for Civil Service positions, very few applicants are referred to the Selecting Official. Please continue to consider opportunities with the Department of State.
