If your application package lacks any of the information necessary to make these determinations, or the information is illegible, you may be ineligible for consideration. The score you receive is a measure of your demonstrated or potential ability to do the job and it determines the quality category to which you are assigned. The quality categories are:
Best Qualified -Candidates who possess the type and quality of experience that substantially exceeds the position's minimum qualifications, including all selective placement factors and appropriate quality ranking factors.
Highly Qualified - Candidates who possess the type and quality of experience that exceeds the position's minimum qualifications.
