Applicants may also combine education and experience to qualify at the GS-11. Have a combination of specialized experience as described in A
and more than one year of graduate education as described in B which totals at least one year. NOTE: to compute, divide your total months of qualifying experience by 12. Then divide your semester hours of graduate education by 18. Add the two percentages. The total percentage must equal at least 100% to qualify. The following is an example of how education and experience may be combined (example only and not all-inclusive). The position to be filled is a Human Resources Specialist, GS-0201-12. An applicant has 6 months of specialized experience equivalent to GS-11 and 1 year of graduate level education. The applicant meets 50 percent of the required experience but none of the required education, since he or she does not have any graduate study beyond that which is required for GS-11. Therefore, the applicant meets only 50 percent of the total requirement and is not qualified for the position. (The applicant’s first year of graduate study is not qualifying for GS-11.)

The work includes walking, standing, bending and carrying of light items such as papers and books and, occasionally, heavier items may be required.
