Navigating USA Jobs and the Federal Hiring Process

This is part of Federal Times’ ongoing series about the federal hiring process. For more information on how to get a federal job, read here.

Almost all federal job openings are listed through the official USAJobs website, which was created in 1996 to replace a paper-based system that required applicants to visit federal buildings to view job announcements. The website has gone through several redesigns and enhancements since that time to make the system more user-friendly.
