This area should include thorough descriptions of all paid and nonpaid positions related to the job for which an applicant is applying as well as descriptions of all duties performed. Other information to include: salary, number of hours worked per week, supervisor's name and phone number, series and pay plan or grade if for a federal position and other accomplishments and related skills.
