Event Details

People get jobs in the Federal Government in the same way that they get most jobs in the private and public companies: by finding job openings and submitting a resume or application.  But searching for a Federal job can be much more complicated because of strict regulations that are designed to keep the federal hiring process fair.  Job titles are standardized, resumes need to be much more detailed and job qualifications are much more specific.

Tailoring your job search to the Federal Government's rules and regulations will increase your chances of getting a federal job.  Discover the types of jobs available in the Federal Civil Service, qualifications required and learn how to increase your chances by:

•    How to search job openings

•    Decoding vacancy job announcements

•    Understanding special hiring authorities

•    Creating a Federal resume and submission

•    Required additional documentation
