The United States Government does not discriminate in employment. The hiring process we use is merit based, and relies on open competition following public notice of the positions we are filling. Should you apply for a job on USAJobs.gov, your qualifications and application materials will be evaluated. Qualified candidates will be compiled on a list and forwarded to a hiring manager for further review. Your financial situation would not come into play at this stage of hiring.
Some positions will require a background investigation to determine your suitability for Federal employment or your eligibility for a security clearance. The scope of the investigation will vary, depending on the nature of the position and the degree of harm that an individual in that position could cause. This is determined by the hiring Federal agency. In some instances, your hiring will be contingent upon completion and favorable adjudication of a background investigation. It is at the background investigation stage that your financial situation would be considered.
Adjudicators use what is called the “whole person” concept to evaluate a person. Any potentially negative information is evaluated regarding its recency, seriousness, relevance to the position and duties, and in light of and in relationship to all other information about a person.
Financial situations in your life will not necessarily impact your ability to obtain a Federal job. We encourage you to apply for any positions in which you are interested.
