1) Ability to  analyze financial statements to determine if a company is creditworthy.

Based on that evaluation, we will place you in one of the following categories- 1) Gold; 2) Silver.

Preference eligibles who meet minimum qualification requirements and who have a compensable service-connected disability of at least 10 percent are listed in the highest quality category, except when the position being filled is scientific or professional at the GS-9 grade level or higher.
