Credit will be given for all appropriate qualifying experience. To receive credit for experience, your resume MUST clearly indicate the nature of the duties and responsibilities for each position, starting and ending dates of employment (month/year), and the resume must reflect full and/or part-time or total number of hours worked (i.e., work 40+ hours a week, rather than indicating full-time). If part-time, the hours must be annotated to be able to pro-rate the amount of qualified specialized experience. To qualify for this position at the GS-11 grade level, you must possess at least one of the following minimum qualifications by close of the announcement: BASIC REQUIREMENTS:
Have successfully completed a full 4-year course of study in an accredited college or university leading to a bachelor’s or higher degree in architecture; or related field that included 60 semester hours of course work in architecture or related disciplines of which at least (1) 30 semester hours were in architectural design, and (2) 6 semester hours were in each of the following: structural technology, properties of materials and methods of construction, and environmental control systems.
Possess a combination of education and experience, college-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the arts and sciences underlying professional architecture, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the architectural principles, methods, and techniques and their applications to the design and construction of improvement of buildings. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by at least ONE of the following: 1) Related curriculum: Degree in architectural engineering may be accepted as satisfying in full the basic requirements, provided the completed course work in architectural engineering provided knowledge, skills, and abilities substantially equivalent to those provided in the courses specified in paragraph A. The curriculum for a degree in either architecture or architectural engineering covers function, esthetics, site, structure economics, mechanical-electrical, and other engineering problems related to the design and construction of buildings primarily (but not exclusively) intended to house human activities. The courses required for a degree in architecture generally place emphasis upon planning, esthetics, and materials and methods of construction, while the courses for an architectural engineering degree place equal or greater weight on the technical engineering aspects such as structural systems, mechanical systems, and the properties of materials. Because of this difference in emphasis, persons with degrees in architecture may have a preference for work assignments that offer greater opportunities for them to express their artistic and creative abilities. As a result, they may be more concerned with planning and design aspects of architecture, and persons with degrees in architectural engineering may be more engaged in aspects emphasizing technical engineering considerations; 2) Experience: an applicant lacking a degree in architecture must have had 1 year of experience in an architect’s office or in architectural work for each year short of graduation from a program of study in architecture. In the absence of college course, 5 years of such experience is required. This experience must have demonstrated that the applicant has acquired a thorough knowledge of the fundamental principles and theories of professional architecture. – AND – SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE: Possess one year of experience equivalent to at least the GS-9 level providing technical support for the identification, researching, planning, treatment and preservation of historic structures; preserving structures physical attributes and materials; identifying issues for long term preservation; investigating, identifying and recording data pertaining to historical structures; planning and designing construction projects effecting historic structures; assisting with or establishing historic architectural project requirements and priorities; developing strategies to achieve short or long-term goals; preparing illustrations and presentation materials using various types of software (e.g., Computer Graphics Design (CAD), Sketch-up or other 3D platforms; Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe In-Design); preparing text by using various types of software (e.g., Microsoft Office); and using photography to document and monitor cultural resource projects.

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.
