4 A participant who is a Canadian citizen, within the meaning of the Citizenship Act, or a permanent resident, as defined in subsection 2(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, must be appointed to the public service under a student employment program ahead of other persons who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents and who have not previously been appointed to the public service under a student employment program if the participant meets the qualifications for the work to be performed.
5 A participant appointed to the public service under the student employment program is not eligible to participate in an internal appointment process unless it is advertised and the following conditions are met:

(b) the participant meets the other criteria established for that area of selection; and
