  • You have to tell us what meaning you want to convey. Both forms are acceptable,and grammatical but the meaning is quite different. Have you looked up these words in a dictionary? What did they say? – Mari-Lou A May 15 '16 at 6:24

One is rarely "entitled to" a job. But one can always be "eligible (or ineligible) for" one. So the second phrase would be the appropriate one.
