Does This Count As Work Experience for CPA in NY

I am currently a CPA in NY. I started out my career at one of the Big 4 accounting firms, but have since moved to my current job in private equity/asset management. I have a colleague who is looking to fulfill her CPA work requirement (also in NY), and given the reporting lines, I would be "signing off" on her work experience. I've researched the work experience requirements, and all of the education and state websites have generic descriptions for what "counts." Do you have any detailed information on what constitutes as work experience for NY CPAs? I want to be 100% sure that her current job function will count towards this experience (and if not, help her arrange for an internal transfer so that she can perform appropriate work).

Also, do you have any pointers on completing the forms? Does NYS like to see a lot of detail in the work experience description, or is it better to keep it simple/generic?
