    Next steps

    All information included in the resume and Occupational Questionnaire is subject to review and verification. HR will review your resume and supporting documentation to ensure you meet the minimum qualification requirements. Applicants meeting the minimum requirements will be further evaluated by information provided in the Occupational Questionnaire. If, after reviewing your resume and/or supporting documentation, a determination is made that you have misrepresented your qualifications and/or experience, you may lose consideration for this position and, if you're already an employee, you may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including removal from Federal service.

    Application of Veterans Preference: The Category Rating Method 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 each category.
