Please ensure that your resume contains specific information such as position titles, beginning and ending dates of employment for each position, average number of hours worked per week, and if the position is/was in the Federal government, you should provide the position series and grade level.

Your resume will also be evaluated to measure your responses to the assessment questions. If you rated yourself higher on the questionnaire than what is supported by your resume, your overall qualifications assessment may be adversely affected.

These category assignments are a measure of the degree in which your background and responses to the assessment questions match the competencies/knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) listed below. Within these categories, candidates eligible for veterans’ preference will receive selection priority over non-veterans.

Qualifying experience may be obtained in the private or public sector. 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. Additional qualifications information can be found here.

Specialized experience CG-14: Applicants must have one year of specialized experience equivalent to the grade 13 level or above in the Federal service.  Specialized experience is experience using risk management information systems to identify, measure, and analyze risk levels across large, complex financial institutions. 

Specialized experience CG-15:  Applicants must have one year of specialized experience equivalent to the grade 14 level or above in the Federal service.  Specialized experience is experience using risk management information systems to identify, measure, and analyze risk levels across large, complex financial institutions and experience serving as a subject matter expert providing guidance, training, and advice to persons within the financial sector.

Large, complex financial institutions may be defined as financial intermediaries engaged in some combination of commercial banking, investment banking, asset management and insurance, whose failure poses a systemic risk or externality to the financial system as a whole. These risks are intertwined among both insured and uninsured subsidiaries, and the largest and most complex of these companies often have global footprints and interdependent counter-party relationships with one another that increase their complexity and risk.
