Tip # 1 - How to Start Your Job Search

You're about to embark on a venture that could determine the course of your working life for years to come. You've decided to seek a job with the federal government. 

Perhaps you're new to the federal job hunting community. If so, you may find the process complicated. Even those who work for the government may be overwhelmed occasionally by the recruiting system. After all, the U.S. government is the nation's largest employer and the word "government" is, unfortunately, synonymous with red tape. Still, there's no reason to be daunted by the federal hiring process or its specialized terminology. By taking the time to understand how the system works, you can reduce frustrations and concentrate your job-hunting energies on the areas that offer you the greatest potential.

Tip # 1 will start you on the right path to your finding a federal job!

TIP #2 - How to Select Your Occupation

This booklet will help you to recognize the importance of doing your homework before you dash off in all directions in pursuit of this government job or that one. With a good approach, one that can reduce your personal frustration and increase the likelihood that you will find and win the job you want, you can also save both time and effort.

You can accomplish this by focusing first, not on government jobs, but on the government occupations (1) that interest you and (2) for which you are qualified.

In fact, without a good understanding of how government occupations are classified, you may have a hard time figuring out which jobs you have a chance to win. But once you have identified those occupations for which you qualify, you can readily determine your government grade level, which establishes how much money you are eligible to earn. You'll then be ready to look for specific job openings and pursue them.

Tip # 2 will help you to match your skills with the right job!

Tip #3 - How to Prepare Your Application

Although federal job hunters have some degree of flexibility when it comes to preparing a federal job application, this flexibility is sometimes overridden by requirements spelled out in a position's vacancy announcement. When a hiring agency accepts paper applications, the job hunter may choose between specific forms (OF-612 or SF-171) or a resume. The agency may require that the resume follow a specific format for electronic processing (such as Resumix or OCR scanning.) And many agencies are now requiring "paperless" (on-line) applications.

As can be expected, the many options cause some confusion, especially among those new to federal hiring procedures. Job hunters aren't always sure about the forms an agency will accept or how to choose from among the options. They wonder if there are instances where one form is better than the others, and they question whether a resume will capture the attention of application review panels.

In this booklet, we discuss the various application alternatives available to job hunters, how they differ, and how they are alike and, in the process, we'll address such questions and doubts. We'll also pass on lots of proven tips and advice on how to give your application (whichever format you select) the impact it needs to win you the job you want.

Tip # 3 will keep help you choose the right application format!

Tip #4 - How to Interview for Job Openings

As a job hunter, your obvious goal is to find and win the right job. To do this, you must achieve a number of intermediate goals that will put you ahead of your competitors. Of these, the most important is to land a job interview. It is from this position that you can catapult to the job you want.

Technically, you don't need to be interviewed to get a federal job. But for those in professional occupations in the federal service, you rarely will receive an attractive job offer unless you have first been interviewed by your prospective employer.

Tip # 4 will help take the "stress" out of the federal job interview!

Tip #5 - How to Change Careers Within Government

Some people think of it as a mid-course maneuver; to others, it's more like starting over. However you may label it, the mid-life career change is increasingly common in today's work force.

No longer do you have to spend your entire working life in chemical engineering or personnel management just because that's where you started out at age 22. No longer do you have to be stalled on the top rung of your career ladder if you have the potential to climb - and courage to grab for - a different rung. It's now possible to significantly alter the direction of your work life without making major financial sacrifices. Because of the highly structured way the government work force is organized, such a maneuver may be complicated for the career federal employee, but it can be done.

Tip # 5 will guide you along your new course for federal employment!

FREE Federal Application Forms Kit
[back to top]

Official OF 612 - Optional Application for Federal Employment

This form can be used to apply for a job in the Federal government. It is designed to take the place of the SF 171 and give the applicant an organized method of applying. By filling out the OF 612, you can be assured you have provided the basic information required to be considered for a Federal job.

OPM Form OF-510

Applying for a Federal Job Instructions

Although the Federal Government doesn't require a standard application form for most jobs, they do require certain information to evaluate your qualifications and determine if you meet legal requirements for Federal employment. 

Official SF 171 - Application for Federal Employment

Since you can still submit an SF 171, for many people this form will continue to be the preferred way to apply for a federal job. The four-page SF-171 "Application for Federal Employment" is reprinted in its entirety with the official instructions.

Work Experience Continuations for SF-171

You'll find two options to describe your previous employment. One gives you a full page for one job; the other allows two jobs on the page.

OF 306 - Declaration for Federal Employment

This form asks you to disclose background information necessary to apply for a job in the Federal government. It is often required to be submitted after you have been selected as potential candidate for a federal job.

OPM Form 1170/17 - College Courses & Certification of Scholastic Achievement

This four-page form should accompany your application if you are relying on education as a substitute for work experience. In addition, some occupations require specific college course work regardless of the candidate's work experience. If you are applying for such occupations, use this form to show that you meet the course work requirements.
