Many federal agencies fill their job openings just like any company in the private sector. They allow applicants to contact them directly for information on job openings and application processing. However, despite the fact that the process is similar, there are a number of significant differences in the way federal agencies hire employees to the way it is done in the private sector. This is due to the fact that there are many laws, regulations and executive orders that govern the way federal employment is processed.

Federal Job Tip of the Week:
• If you have just graduated from high school but are unable to go to college or university for any reason, you can make your time more productive by applying for a registered apprenticeship program with the local or federal government.
Through a registered apprenticeship program, you can learn new skills in a manner that combines both the practical hands-on approach and the theoretical classroom approach. You can also use your apprenticeship as credentials in your resume or additional credits for when you finally enter university.
• Not sure of what kind of government or federal job that you would be interested in? You can easily gauge what kind of government job will suit you by answering questionnaires that you can find on the career exploration page of
www.usajobs.gov. In this way, you can tailor your job search to government jobs that will interest you and you know you can be good at.
Previous Weeks' Federal Tip:
• Did you know that you should not use government agency envelopes that are postage-paid to file your job applications? Doing so is a violation of federal law.
• Male applicants born after December 31, 1959 must be registered with the selective service system so they can be eligible for a federal job.
Useful General Information:
• You should never have to pay for placements in federal jobs. Some companies may sell guidebooks or study materials for positions such as post office jobs that require an exam. However, no one should ever ask you for money specifically to get a federal job.
• It is no longer required for you to take a civil service exam to qualify for a government job. The traditional civil service exam is now considered obsolete and you do not have to take a test anymore to apply for a job with the government, unless it was clearly specified in the job application requirements.
• You do not have to be a US citizen to apply for a federal job, but this is not a guarantee that you will be employed by the US government. Under the Executive Order 11935, only US citizens may be appointed to a federal job unless there are no qualified candidates that hold American citizenship.
