Be careful to note any education, certificates, licenses, training, or specific experience required for individual positions. Applications should normally be tailored to each specific job posting so that the applicant can emphasize work experience most relevant to that position.

The information included in the employment history section of the application will be the official record of your employment experience. It must accurately reflect all significant duties performed.

Screening for work experience is based on the information listed in the employment history section. Applicants must demonstrate in the application how they meet the minimum education and experience requirements as stated in the job posting. No assumptions will be made.

Be specific and detailed when providing information in the employment history section. Failure to list specific examples of work duties in all areas of qualifications, knowledge, skills, and abilities listed in the job posting may result in the applicant being considered unqualified and/or not being granted an interview.
