What is USAJOBS?

USAJOBS is federal job board designed for federal agencies and organizations seeking applicants for the more than 20,000 job openings posted to the site every single day. It allows job seekers access to these opportunities in a secure environment (with account sign-up) and is the official source for job listings within the federal government.

As the federal government’s official source for job listings, application information, and employment opportunities, USAJOBS has attracted more than 17 million applicants since its inception.

Who can use USAJOBS?

USAJOBS is a federal job board available to any U.S. citizen. It provides tremendous opportunity for those already in the federal system by way of “moving up the ladder,” so to speak. And if you’re interested in working for the federal government, this is the first stop to make in your search. Nearly 3 million people are employed by the U.S. government and that number is expected to increase over the next several years.

How can USAJOBS help me?

If you’re looking to improve the current breadth of your job search, then USAJOBS is the place to start. Here are just a few ways it can help:

  • It can act as a resume and document repository with a capacity of up to five resumes ready for action.
  • You can initiate an advanced search using keywords, location, or job category and even search by agency.
  • Set up customized job alerts and special notifications by running job searches automatically and receive the results via email daily, weekly, or monthly.
  • Monitor your application status based on updates provided by the hiring agency.
  • Sign up for real-time updates and notifications of new content based on performed and saved searches.
  • Access the resource center for frequently asked questions, tutorials on website functions, and best practices for using USAJOBS most efficiently.
  • The mobile app is a great way to find jobs while you’re on the go—just remember that you cannot apply to a job via the mobile app.
  • Follow or like USAJOBS on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for the absolute latest.

How do I get started with USAJOBS?

The only requirement to establish a USAJOBS account is a valid email. Simply click on “Create an Account” and follow the steps to complete the process. Once registered, you can build a resume or upload an existing resume in various compatible formats, including Word documents and pdf. The important thing to remember is that USAJOBS requires a specific format for submission and restrictive character counts in certain areas of the resume.

You can begin your job search immediately upon registration with a variety of criteria, including agency name, job type, location, and even desired salary. Remember that thousands of new jobs are added to the USAJOBS website every single day.

What else should I know about USAJOBS?

The process of applying for a federal position on USAJOBS can sometimes be a bit daunting, from understanding the terms used at various hiring agencies to knowing exactly how the application process works; it can be very different from agency to agency and sometimes only slight changes can affect how you submit your resume and application. Keywords and accomplishments are also critical to building an effective USAJOBS resume.

It’s generally not a good idea to submit any old resume you have lying around. There is a specific format for a USAJOBS resume that is proven most effective. If you aren’t sure how to proceed confidently then it may be worth considering the services of a professional federal resume writer. CareerProPlus has mastered the fine art of the USAJOBS resume; of particular interest is our so-called “secret weapon.”
