 HOW TO APPLY:   Applicants must access the vacancy announcements through USAJobs – http://usajobs.gov/  Applicants must establish a profile and build or upload a resume in the USAJobs site.   For assistance in navigating USAJobs: https://help.usajobs.gov/index.php/Main_Page

  • Once you have established your Profile and Resume, that data will be used in all future applications without the need to reenter.  It is recommended that applicants complete the on-line resume and attach a document/resume with past supervisor’s contact information to expedite reference checks.  Applicants are still required to recertify their application every 60 days.   
  • Applicants will need to attach any required supporting documents (DD-214 to claim Veterans Preference, Transcripts, etc.) for each job applied to – they are not automatically added to your application from your profile.   
  • If your application documents are too large (more than 3MB) to upload into USAJOBS, you can convert your documents into a Portable Document Format (PDF) file to reduce the file size.  Please read the entire Vacancy Announcement carefully.     
  • Your responses will be evaluated by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and Human Resources to confirm supporting documentation and experience from your resume and past supervisor’s reference checks.
