How do I determine if I qualify for a particular job?

Minimum qualifications for a position are listed on the job announcement. Read these requirements carefully.  You should be able to determine whether or not you meet the minimum qualifications. If you are unsure, submit your application and Human Resources will review and compare your qualifications to other applications received.

Education or experience standards must be met as of the closing date of a job posting. Any exceptions to this requirement are noted in the job announcement. Possession of job requirements does not guarantee an interview. Each candidate's qualifications will be reviewed in comparison with other candidates.
