Finding Federal Jobs in Your Own Back Yard!

Looking to find a federal job? Currently there are close to 2,000,000 federal and an additional 600,000 Postal workers with employment opportunities at literally tens of thousands of facilities nationwide and overseas. You would be surprised at just how many possibilities exist in your own back yard.

When I started my personal competitive federal job search I was an avionics technician in the military and temporarily deployed overseas. While there I visited the FAA’s flight inspection avionics shop at the Frankfort airport and discovered that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) hires technicians at thousands of locations stateside. Upon my return I immediately started searching for the federal job that I eventually retired from 30 + years later.

You too can find lucrative and high paying federal jobs in hundreds of occupations that offer excellent benefits, job security, and a comfortable retirement down the road. The key to finding a federal job is to tailor your federal resume and application to the job announcement. Unlike private sector employers, all federal job vacancies offer highly informative job announcements that guide your step-by-step through the application process.

Improve your chances by applying for multiple positions and expand you search to related occupations.

Finding federal jobs is not very difficult. Hopefully you will find the advice and links in this article helpful for your federal job search.
