Position is being advertised concurrently under BR-DO-2018-249 for all US Citizens and U.S Nationals that are Recent Graduates. If you are interested in applying under both announcements, you must submit application packages for each.
You must meet all qualification requirements, including time-in-grade restrictions, by the closing date of this announcement.
TIME-IN-GRADE: Current career or career-conditional employees of the Federal government, or former career or career-conditional employees, who have a break in service of less than one year, are required to meet the time-in-grade restriction of one year of Federal experience at the next lower grade, with few exceptions outlined in 5 CFR 300.603(b).
All applicants must possess one year of specialized experience. To meet specialized experience, your resume must describe experience that demonstrates the particular knowledge, skills, and abilities as defined below:
GS-5: One year of specialized experience equivalent in difficulty and complexity to at least the GS-4 level in the Federal Government. Examples include experience supporting a budget team, preparing forms and documents, pulling reports, using available guidelines, and compiling data.
GS-6: One year of specialized experience equivalent in difficulty and complexity to at least the GS-5 level in the Federal Government. Examples include experience executing budget procedures, preparing forms, documents, and reports, applying guidelines, compiling data, and providing data updates.
SUBSTITUTION OF EDUCATION FOR EXPERIENCE: Applicants may also qualify on the basis of education as follows:
GS-05: 4 years of education above high school
GS-06: No substitution of education for specialized experience
COMBINATION OF EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE: Combinations of successfully completed post-high school education and experience may be used to meet total qualification requirements. This is done by determining the applicant's total qualifying experience as a percentage of the experience required for the grade level; then determining the applicant's education as a percentage of the education required for the grade level; and then adding the two percentages. The total percentages must equal at least 100 percent to qualify an applicant for that grade level.
For GS-5 level positions, only education in excess of the first 60 semester hours (i.e., beyond the second year) is creditable toward meeting the specialized experience requirement. One full academic year of study (30 semester hours) beyond the second year is equivalent to 6 months of specialized experience.
Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience.
Promotions to the next grade/salary level are neither guaranteed nor automatic, but based on supervisor initiation.
This vacancy announcement allows substituting education for experience. You must submit a copy of your college transcript (unofficial copy is acceptable) to support your education if you are substituting education for experience. Transcripts must include the name of the college or university and date the degree was conferred.
Foreign Education: To receive credit for education completed outside the United States, applicants must show proof that the education has been submitted to a private organization that specializes in interpretation of foreign educational credentials and such education has been deemed at least equivalent to that gained in conventional U.S. education programs.
