I was previously qualified for a position with a specific title, series, and grade by ATF. Does that mean I will automatically qualify for all future positions with this title and grade?

No. Although you were previously deemed qualified for a position at a certain grade, there is no guarantee that you will be found qualified for like positions. Each vacancy announcement or position has different experience and/or education requirements. Just because you were qualified for one position, does not mean you will be automatically qualified for all other similar positions. It is important to review each vacancy announcement in its entirety, and ensure your application meets all the requirements. Additionally, different Human Resources professionals will most likely review your application and may have different opinions about your qualifications or any prior determinations. Human Resources professionals at ATF help find the best candidates for certain managers and different managers have different needs.
