Frequently Asked Questions USAJOBS

I found a job in the newspaper or on Federal job search. Why can’t I find it on USAJOBS?

Most but not all Federal job openings are required to be posted on USAJOBS (some job opportunities announced for the Federal judicial branch are not listed in USAJOBS). If the job advertisement you found was placed by a Federal agency, please contact the agency directly for details and instructions on how to apply.  Be cautious of any company that promises to provide you with Federal job lists or civil service test help. Federal job information is available free of charge from the United States Government via USAJOBS, the Federal government's website.
