This is the first of many articles to help job seekers find, apply for, and land a high paying and secure federal government job. The articles will cover all aspects of federal employment from entry level jobs to Senior Executive Service (SES) positions, federal benefits, to pay and career exploration. We will also help you cope with the often stressful federal job interview.
Our site, www.federaljobs.net, provides easy to find information about all aspects of federal employment including expanded centralized job listings. Our job searches compile listings from both the private and federal sectors by occupation and /or agency to provide the largest pool of job vacancies for you to explore. The job searches are geographically targeted to your area. Unlike most job listing services we also offer abundant information on all aspects of the federal sector to prepare you for your new job. It isn’t enough to simply apply for a job vacancy, you need to know about how the federal sector functions, what your benefits will be, the work environment, and how to understand the various pay systems, pay structure and upward mobility potential.
Use this site to locate federal job announcements and for assistance with completing your federal application and resume and to prepare for civil service exams if required. You can explore job vacancies by occupations or agency plus learn how to best prepare for a federal job interview. Explore the qualification standards for all occupations and learn about overseas jobs, healthcare and law enforcement jobs, student employment, and jobs with the Post Office. Many resources are available to locate job announcements for all occupations including agency sponsored job hot lines, Internet Web site links, employment services, and directories. Research hiring programs such as student hiring, employee reinstatement, and veteran’s preference.
This is an interactive blog, submit your questions and comments and we will use the feedback to develop future articles that will address your interests and concerns. I look forward to working with site visitors to ensure they have the tools and information they need to pursue their federal job quest.
