One request I get each time I talk with students, teachers, Federal employees and community leaders is: Please make USAJOBS easier to use.
I’ve heard you. OPM wants to make USAJOBS the best possible tool for people searching for a job in the Federal government. And to do that we need your help.
I’m happy to announce that our USAJOBS team is beginning a program to ask people who use USAJOBS to help us identify the issues they encounter when they access the site. Our team is looking for volunteers, and we need your feedback.
We would need about two hours of your time. Here are some of the things we may ask you to do as part of our research:
Getting help from those who use USAJOBS is crucial to our effort to improve it. We want USAJOBS to be easy to navigate. We want it to be the best it can be for you, the job seeker.

The College Tour continues. Thursday I had the pleasure of meeting with students at the University of Virginia’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy.
It was my first visit to Charlottesville. What a beautiful campus!
I brought some members of my Office of Personnel Management team with me to talk to the students about what it’s like to work for the Federal government and what the opportunities are for Federal service. They had a good discussion and the students had lots of questions.
I shared some of my earliest experiences in public service and urged the students give us a try. It’s a message I want to take to young people across the country. We’re looking for fresh talent. We’re looking for people who want to use their skills to help their fellow Americans. We’re looking for our next generation of public service leaders.
They asked important questions about how to make a resume stand out from the pack and about the process for applying for a Federal job.
I talked about the incredible variety of jobs in the Federal government that are available all across this great country. I pointed them to USAJOBS.gov and we showed a short video that chronicles the breadth of careers available.
I plan to continue my college tour to spread the word about the opportunities in Federal service. I urge all of us in the Federal family to do the same.
I started my college tour this week with a visit to George Mason University. Talking to students is one of the most important and rewarding parts of my job as Director of the Office of Personnel Management. I want to visit as many campuses as possible to spread the word about the great opportunities for a career in the Federal government.
On Tuesday, I met with a group of students and faculty. The subject? Web sites. Two sites to be exact: healthcare.gov and usajobs.gov.
The deadline for enrolling in the Affordable Care Act marketplaces for this year is March 31. I urged the students to check out healthcare.gov to see all the plans available to them and the possible Federal assistance they can get to help pay the premiums.
Even if you already have health insurance, as I told the students, share the great information on healthcare.gov with anyone you know who needs health coverage. First bookmark the page for yourself. Then Tweet it, Post it. Text it. Like it. Share it. Vine it. Get the word out anywhere you can.
The other website I urged the George Mason community to look at was usajobs.gov. I especially told them to click on “Students and recent graduates.” That links to OPM’s Pathways page. There are listings for internships, jobs for recent graduates and information about the Presidential Management Fellows program.
It’s never too early for students to start planning their Federal career.
