If you meet the basic qualification requirements, your entire application package will be further evaluated to determine the quality and extent of your experience, education, training, etc. The applicant's responses to the assessment questions in the vacancy announcement, as supported by the resume, will count toward a portion of the applicant's total evaluation. In addition Phased Rating incorporates a panel review and a structured interview as a portion of the applicant's total evaluation.

2. The panel will validate the applicants' answers to the assessment questions against information provided in their resumes, including their paid or volunteer experience, education, training, certifications; and for FDIC employees, in their current performance appraisal. The results from the panel review will determine who is interviewed.

3. A structured applicant interview will be conducted as part of the assignment of a final rating assessment.
