Federal Employment Process

How Federal jobs will be filled is determined by the Federal civil service laws and regulations, augmented, in some cases, by additional statutes and Executive Orders. Methods may differ depending on the agency and the nature of the position. Many Federal agencies permit applicants to contact the agency directly for additional job information and to better understand the application process.
