About 2 years ago I started working in a specific job series (no previous exp) but recently I applied, found eligible, referred, and interviewed for a position in the field I have previous experience in. The same day they called saying they wanted to move forward. The interviewing agency discovered how low my current GS-level is in comparison to the new one (GS-7 to GS-11). The lady who facilitating the interview setup (HR) said she doesn't know if it is possible and I may have to resign for a day and then accept the offer when it comes. Anyone heard of this? It was a federal position open to the public

If it was an announcement open to the public as in All US Citizens, which seems to be the case, and not just those with competitive status, time-in-grade restriction shouldn't be a problem. Even if you have to resign for a day, which I don't think you do, that wouldn't be a big deal.

There should be no reason for you to resign. If this was a promotion within the same agency that might be the case. Resigning creates a break in service that messes up the computation of your benefits, etc.

Do not resign, I don't think the HR person knows what they're talking about.

HR (as usual) doesn't know what they are talking about. Going to a different series is not the same as staying within a series - going from one series to another doesn't require a lateral. Don't resign - ask for more help.

You can go from 7 to 11 without resigning if the 11 was open to public and you were qualified based on work done outside of the feds.

Thanks, this is exactly what I was thinking that if I resigned it would affect my benefits.

Thank you, I qualified with my non fed positions. I will see where this goes.
