General Experience is (1) any type of work that demonstrates the applicant’s ability to perform the work of the position, or (2) experience that provided a familiarity with the subject matter or processes of the broad subject area of the occupation such as assisting in the preparation of reports, utilizing computer programs to store and retrieve data, and providing information to others. Specialized Experience is experience such as working in a nursery that required the growing and maintenance of plants in a controlled environment; working in an environment comparable to a large farm where production records, animal environment, and sanitary conditions were kept in accordance with modern industry practice; taking and recording scientific measures; or assisting with research activities or field investigations related to the biological sciences. (Excess Specialized Experience can substitute for General Experience; but excess General Experience cannot be substituted for required Specialized Experience). (You must include hours per week worked on your resume.) -OR- EDUCATION: You must have successfully completed at least two years of education above high school (60 semester hour or 90 quarter hours) which included at least 12 semester hours in any combination of scientific or technical courses such as in biology, chemistry, statistics, entomology, animal husbandry, botany, physics, agriculture, or mathematics; at least 6 semester hours must be directly related to the position. (You must include a copy of your transcripts.) -OR- Successful completion of a combination of education and experience as described above.

The total must equal at least 100 percent. For example: I have 6 months of the general experience described above (50% of the experience requirement), plus 30 semester hours of undergraduate level work (50% of the education requirement) – which includes: at least 6 semester hours (50% of the courses as described above); of which, at least 3 semester hours of study must be directly related to the position (50% of the directly related study as described above).
