- Applicants must meet all the requirements for the position they are seeking as of the date of the application, unless otherwise specified. Unless specifically indicated, the required education and experience may not be gained concurrently. Note: Calculation of experience is based on full-time, 40-hour workweeks. Part-time experience is pro-rated. Example: Twelve months of experience at 20 hours/week is equivalent to six months of experience, not one year. Also, hours worked in excess of 40 hours/week will not be credited. Example: Twelve months of experience at 60 hours/week is equivalent to one year of experience, not one and a half years.
To qualify, you must meet all of the following requirements:
- Education Requirement:
Graduation from an accredited four-(4) year college or university with a Bachelor's degree. (Please attach or mail in a copy of your official diploma/transcripts to receive credit.)
Excess work experience as described under the Specialized Experience below or any other progressively responsible administrative, professional or other analytical work experience which provided knowledge, skills and abilities comparable to those acquired in four-(4) years of successful study while completing a college or university curriculum leading to a baccalaureate degree may be substituted on a year-for-year basis. To be acceptable, the experience must have been of such scope, level and quality as to assure the possession of comparable knowledge, skills and abilities.
The education or experience background must also demonstrate the ability to write clear and comprehensive reports and other documents; read and interpret complex written material; and solve complex problems logically and systematically.
Specialized Experience Requirement:
None for level I; six (6) months for level II; 1-1/2 years for level III; 2-1/2 years for level IV; and, for level V, 3-1/2 years of professional work experience in one or any combination of personnel management functions; i.e. recruitment, placement, examination, position classification, pay or wage administration, employee management relations and services, employee development, personnel program development and services, labor relations and personnel research.

Such experience must have been comparable to the Personnel Management Specialist IV in State Service.
The Worker's Compensation Experience may have been gained concurrently or separately with the Specialized Experience.

For example, most work experience in a supervisory or managerial position requires responsibility for some personnel functions. However, if the dominant responsibility of the position is not concerned with a fundamental component of a structured personnel system (i.e., classification, recruitment, labor relations, etc.), such experience is not considered qualifying.
Clerical or technical experience in a personnel program involving work which is limited to the application of personnel rules, regulations and procedures in support of the personnel functions described above is not qualifying.

Possession of a Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a minimum of fifteen (15) semester credit hours of course work in personnel administration, personnel and industrial relations or human resources management covering the recruitment and selection process; job evaluation; performance appraisal; employee training and safety; personnel compensation and benefits administration; staffing process; organizational development; labor laws and/or labor relations may be substituted for six (6) months of specialized experience.
2. Possession of a Master's degree from an accredited college or university in personnel administration, personnel and industrial relations or human resources management may be substituted for one (1) year of the specialized experience.
