You served your country in the uniformed service, now you can continue to serve your country in the civil service at OPM. The skills and experience you gained in the military—technical skills, teamwork, leadership—are just what we are looking for in future employees. Last year, 40.3% of our new employees were veterans, including 18.7% who were disabled veterans.
In collaboration with the Federal government, we offer a number of hiring programs that benefit veterans, transitioning service members, and their families. Veterans may be given preference during the hiring process when applying to OPM positions at USAJOBS and depending on eligibility, may also qualify for special hiring authorities. These special authorities include the Veterans Recruitment Authority (VRA), appointments for 30% or more disabled veterans, appointments under the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act (VEOA), and opportunities for disabled veterans enrolled in a Department of Veterans Affairs training program. Learn more about hiring rules for veterans.
If you are interested in a career opportunity at OPM, get our job list.
Veterans who are eligible to be considered under a special hiring authority may submit their application to be non-competitively considered even when we don’t have a current job opportunity announcement posted. We will keep your information on file and refer your resume to hiring managers for consideration.
To find out more about Federal employment, we invite you to visit us at our new Veterans Employment Program office. Here you can take part in monthly workshops and get resume and career assistance that can help you find the right job at OPM or another Federal agency.
