Searching For A Federal Job

By: Heather Eagar

Looking for a federal job can be done at most Federal buildings around the country and even through an interactive voice response telephone system for the hearing impaired. A search may turn up something called a ‘hot job’, which is a job that needs to be filled immediately. The office of personnel management usually posts these for those who are in need of immediate employment. If a person performing job search would like to work with a specific federal agency, many times each federal agency will list their job openings right on their individual web site.

Most individuals looking for a federal job can complete the application process by submitting a resume, a federal employment application or even other written form of application approved by the department accepting applications.

The federal government does provide application forms like the optional application for federal employment form OF-612 and the SF-171.

If an individual has done a job search and found positions that he or she would like to apply for, whatever type of application is submitted should contain important information. Applicants should include all of the job information that was included in the job listing, the applicants personal information including all contact information, the applicant’s educational history, previous employment record and any pertinent experience related to the job position. Once the federal job search and application process is completeScience Articles, applicants simply need to wait for a response.
