HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:

We will review your resume and cover letter to determine if you meet the

The candidates in the highest category will be certified for referral to the
selecting official. If you are applying as a MERIT candidate, we will review
your resume, optional cover letter and supporting documentation to determine
if you meet the minimum qualifications for the position. If you meet the
minimum qualifications stated in the vacancy announcement, we will compare
your resume, operational cover letter and supporting documentation to your

identified for referral to the hiring manager and may be invited to an
