On job positions, there is often a starting Grade /Step and a Targeted Grade /Step. What is the difference between these and what does it mean when they are the same grade and step?

Some positions are hired at a lower grade with promotion potential to a higher grade without further competition. For example, I am hired as a Human Resources Specialist, GS-07 with a target GS-11. I could be promoted with successful performance to the GS-11 without having to compete. If the vacancy announcement has just one grade listed, it means you would need to compete for a higher graded position.
