There are three (3) parts to each job's Minimum Requirements:
Education level.

Related Experience:
Only count related experience for the job the employee will be entering.

Financial Analyst job. John's teaching experience is not applicable because this particular
work experience did not require him to perform duties related to those of a Financial
Analyst.
Counting Experience:

experience from January 2012 to January 2013 should only be counted once, regardless

selected jobs at one (1) year of related work experience per one (1) year of college. Experience
