(You must provide copies of official transcripts at the time of application.) GENERAL EXPERIENCE: To qualify for this position, your resume must reflect sufficient experience and/or education to perform the duties of the position for which you are applying. Your resume is key in evaluating your experience, as it relates to this position. Therefore, we encourage you to be clear and specific when describing your work experience. Time-In-Grade Requirement: Applicants who are current Federal employees and have held a GS grade any time in the past 52 weeks must also meet time-in-grade requirements by the closing date of this announcement. For a GS-12 position you must have served 52 weeks at the GS-11 Level. An SF-50 that shows your time-in-grade eligibility must be submitted with your application materials. Note: Time-In-Grade requirements also apply to former Federal employees applying for reinstatement. SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE: GS-12 Level – In addition to the required basic education requirement, you must possess specialized experience for the GS-12 Level, which includes at least (2) years of professional legal experience, at least one of which must be specialized experience at a level of difficulty comparable to the GS-11 level in the Federal service. Examples of Specialized Experience would typically include, but are not limited to: Effectively managing and accomplishing a day-to-day legal workload necessary to provide legal services and support to supervisors and upper level managers; providing professional legal advice and opinions, both written and oral, on issues arising from federal laws and regulations and/or concerning the organization’s mission; serving as litigation point of contact for an organization; preparing litigation reports, briefs, pleading, and other papers associated with litigation; appearing as counsel for officials or employees in civil litigation, when designated; acting as representative in third-party proceedings under the Federal Labor-Management Relations Statute; reviewing organization’s collective bargaining agreements for legal sufficiency; participating in collective bargaining as a member of a management negotiating team; preparing claims reports for the processing of claims by the appropriated claims office; and reviewing contract, procurement actions, and real property matters involving federal funds for legal sufficiency. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the GS-11 grade/level position or equivalent in the federal service. Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. Verbiage displayed on your resume or application must contain your own words. You may refer to position descriptions, i.e. the general and specialized experience located within the vacancy announcement, to assist with describing work experiences; however, resumes or applications received in verbatim will not be considered. In your resume you will need to address the general and specialized experience listed below. Please use as much detail as needed, giving dates (months and years) of the experience, position title and how the experience was gained. This information is needed to determine if you are qualified for the position.
