Information about Getting a Federal Government Job

Guest blogger Jana Sabol wishes she’d had this publication before she got her job.

Wouldn’t you love getting assistance in applying for a Federal Government job? I say this from experience, as I began my own Government career just eight months ago.

One publication that I wish I had known about before initiating the process of beginning my career within the Federal Government is How to Get a Job in the Federal Government. I was fortunate enough to have the assistance of other Federal employees to assist me in the application process. For those less fortunate, I highly recommend this publication by the U.S. Department of Labor. It will guide you through occupational series, qualifications, the General Schedule (GS) for pay scales, and other highly valuable tools for acquiring a job within the Federal Government. How to Get a Job in the Federal Government also guides its readers through the use of USAJOBS, the Government’s employment website.

I recommend this publication to all first time Federal Government job seekers as a highly beneficial tool in beginning the search and application process for launching their Government careers. You can purchase a copy of this book from the GPO Bookstore or as an eBook through Google Books. You can also find it in a library.

    November was about jobs, jobs, and more jobs.
    Those that won and got in are now saying
    cut spending, cut earmarks, and cut deficit.
    More jobs we add to the government the more taxes we’ll need to collect from the voters or is it,
    forget about adding jobs and just increase the taxes?
    My job? Plant more trees for all the books being printed.
