How You Will Be Evaluated

You will be evaluated for this job based on how well you meet the qualifications above.

Resumes will be rated by an automated system (Resumix) that matches the competencies extracted from the candidate's resume to the competencies identified by the selecting official for the position. Candidates will be evaluated on the competencies they possess that are directly related to the duties of the job, as described in this announcement. Candidates should refer to NASA's Applicant Guide for assistance in developing a complete resume. NASA will not accept separate KSA statement.

A category rating method will be used to evaluate candidates. All candidates will be assigned to either a 70, 80, or 90 pt. quality category based on the degree to which their competencies meet the position requirements. All candidates in the 90 pt group, which is the highest quality category, may be referred for consideration. A human resources specialist will validate the qualifications of those candidates eligible to be referred to the selecting official. In certain instances when a large candidate pool exists within the highest quality category, additional weighting of scores may occur to further distinguish best qualified candidates. For the purpose of the Career Transition Assistance Program (CTAP) and the Interagency Career Transition Assistance Program (ICTAP), candidates rated in the top quality category are considered well-qualified.

In order to apply for this position, you only need to submit your resume and answer the screening questions and supplemental information.

Nothing further is required until requested by the Human Resources Office. At that point, we may ask you to submit documentation to support statements made in your resume. For example, we may ask you to provide academic transcripts or proof of Federal employment status.

If you fail to provide the required documents within the stated time period, we may withdraw a job offer and/or remove you from further consideration.

If you are relying on your education to meet qualification requirements:

Education must be accredited by an accrediting institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education in order for it to be credited towards qualifications. Therefore, provide only the attendance and/or degrees from schools accredited by accrediting institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education .

Failure to provide all of the required information as stated in this vacancy announcement may result in an ineligible rating or may affect the overall rating.
