Applying for a Federal Job just got Easier!
Applying for a Federal Job is Easier Than Ever - and We Have the Tools to Help
2010 Hiring Reforms have made applying for a federal job much easier. You will be able to apply to almost any federal job with just a resume, and an optional cover letter. Starting immediately, some agencies no longer require narrative responses, or KSAs, as a part of the initial application process. You may still be required to answer a self assessment multiple choice questionnaire, so please pay close attention to the information listed under "How to Apply" in each job opportunity announcement.
Federal Employment 2010–20 Projections
Between 2010 and 2020, government employment, excluding employment in public education and hospitals, is expected to increase by 2 percent. Growth in government employment will be dampened by budgetary constraints and the outsourcing of government jobs to the private sector. Federal government employment, including jobs in the Postal Service, is expected to decline by 13 percent, as officials work to reduce the budget deficits and curb government spending. State and local governments, excluding education and hospitals, are anticipated to grow by 7 percent.
