Frequently Asked Questions Classification

I work(ed) for Congress. Do I have a series and grade?

The Congressional personnel system does not use a classification system like the one maintained by OPM and used by most Federal agencies. Because of this, you do not have a series or grade. If you are applying for a job with another Federal agency, contact the hiring agency for further guidance. The hiring agency may ask you to identify the series and grade your position most closely matches. Your servicing human resources office may be able to provide assistance with matching your position.
