HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:
Your application will be evaluated and rated under Category Rating and Selection procedures. Category rating combines the applicant's total qualifying experience and education/training into a single quality category. If you meet the basic qualification requirements, we will further evaluate your entire application package to determine the quality and extent of your experience, education, training, etc., for placement in one of the following categories:
1) Highly Qualified - Exceeds the minimum qualification requirements and all requirements of the position;
2) Well Qualified - Meets the minimum qualification requirements and nearly all requirements of the position;
3) Qualified - Meets the minimum qualification requirements.
The Category Rating Process does not add veterans' preference points or apply the "rule of three", but protects the rights of veterans by placing them ahead of non-preference eligibles within appropriate category. A selecting official may make selections from the highest quality category (Highly Qualified) provided no preference eligible in that category is passed over to select a non-preference eligible in that category unless approval has been granted.
NOTE: If it is determined that your responses to the job-specific questions are inconsistent with your resume or if your resume is incomplete, you will be rated ineligible or not qualified. To preview questions please click here.
