    They could hold a number of different positions depending on the level of the career. An officer would only start in the medium career level.

    Officials of the Medium or elevated careers who were on temporary service until their final appointment as lifetime officials were identified by the prefix "a.p." or "ap", meaning "extraordinary" (ausserplanmassig)

    Medium career:

    Sekretar of all branches:

    Techn. Sekretar, Wetterdienstsekretar,Justizsekretar, Ministerialkanzleivorstecher,Oberwerkmeister:


    Maschinenmeister 1;
