Federal agencies fill jobs in several ways and not all jobs are open to external applicants. Agencies can promote an employee, hire an employee who wants to transfer from another agency, reinstate a former Federal employee, or request the names of applicants from an OPM register.

Current Job Openings
If you are pursuing your first Federal Government position, the best source of information is the job announcement. It will explain what the job duties are, what experience or education is necessary to qualify, the pay, and where to send your application. The application process usually consists of two parts: the OF-612 application or resume, and the Knowledges, Skills, and Abilities.

Did You Know?
Several species of plants in the Buttercup Family are aquatic, growing underwater in lakes and ponds. A few are even amphibious, meaning that a single plant lives partly on sand along a shoreline and partly submerged. Such plants have runners, like a strawberry plant, and grow roots along the runners. The submerged leaves appear quite different from the ones growing in air.
