Frequently Asked Questions Assessment Policy

What can we do if an applicant does not have the experience they claimed to have (or indicated) on an occupational questionnaire (e.g., cannot verify via the applicant's resume)?

Check with your human resources office for which policies and procedures your agency follows.  For example, some policies require that the staffing specialist change the applicant's self-report score to better reflect the applicant's true level of experience. 

If you have additional questions regarding occupational questionnaires, please contact us at
