Finding a job with the U.S. Government...it takes commitment
It can be a long ordeal, but the Feds and others have pulled some information together to try to help.
A good first step is to go to USAJobs
, and explore. There is a lot of information available, including a Resume Builder. Pay close attention to eligibility, as some jobs are only open to Veterans or other special populations.
Also go to GoGovernment.org
, which has additional helpful information.
The Office of Personnel Management also offers a lot of information on a helpful site called HR University
to help in your application.
- Federal Occupations Toolkit – This tool helps the user see all of the various types of jobs in the Federal Government, defines each one of them, and provides a quick search on USAJOBS to see what it currently available.
