USAJOBS, the Federal Government’s career portal, is continuously evolving to be an effective and user-friendly tool. We appreciate feedback from our users that helps us to enhance and improve USAJOBS. As an example, we are pleased to announce a new platform for user log in: login.gov. Login.gov, a General Services Administration (GSA) product, offers USAJOBS users the opportunity to benefit from GSA’s focus on authentication, security, privacy and usability.

So, what is login.gov? Login.gov provides the public with secure and private online access to participating government programs. With just a single login.gov account, users can sign into programs at a variety of government agencies without needing to create and remember multiple user names and passwords. The ultimate goal of login.gov is to make managing Federal benefits, services and applications easier and more secure.

What does this change mean to your USAJOBS account? Nothing will happen to the information already stored in your USAJOBS account and profile. You will be able to keep all of your applications, saved searches, and saved jobs. Once you set up a login.gov account, you will connect the account to your USAJOBS profile. The only difference is that you will now use your login.gov email address, password and pin code to sign into USAJOBS.

Login.gov will provide greater security to your profile and uploaded documentation by confirming you, the correct user, have access to each account by requiring two-factor authentication, a standard method used to increase the security of online accounts of all types, from social media to banking.

Here at OPM’s USAJOBS program, we are excited to offer a product that enhances log-in access to federal jobs while simultaneously increasing account security. Our team will continue to post updates and information to our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ pages throughout the next few weeks to help our job seekers with this transition.

For more information on using login.gov, please refer to our USAJOBS Help Center.
