  • Read the entire vacancy announcement carefully and follow all directions in the vacancy announcement. 
  • Applicants respond to a series of questions to determine Core Eligibility and Minimum Qualifications in an Assessment Questionnaire.  Your responses will be evaluated to confirm that you have provided supporting documentation and experience in your resume.
