2. Candidates must achieve a passing score on each test part in order to advance to the next step in the selection process.
3. All qualified applications and supplemental responses will be competitively evaluated, with those candidates receiving a passing score to be invited to a panel interview scheduled for mid-February 2019.

Therefore, you should describe your work experience clearly, thoroughly, and accurately. Be sure to include your employer's name and the time period of the experience you are describing. Be specific and succinct. Your responses should demonstrate your ability to write concise and well-organized documents using correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

When describing your experience, please confine your remarks to assignments you have personally performed. Should you respond with comments such as “see application” or “see resume” instead of addressing the questions directly, your application may not be considered.
