What kinds of federal jobs are available?
http://wherethejobsare.org/WTJA/about/WTJA09.pdf.Â The top areas, according to this report, include: Medical and Public Health (54,000 + jobs); Security and Protection (52,000 jobs); Compliance and Enforcement (31,000 jobs); Legal (more than 23,000 jobs); and Administration/Program Management (over 17,000 jobs.) Hopefully one of them has your name on it. You can see actual job openings for most agencies at www.usajobs.gov. There is a ton of information for each vacancy announcement (Fedspeak for â€œjob openingâ€), everything you could possibly want to know. The vacancy announcement tells you, in great detail, exactly what the requirements are for each job, and what information they want from you. There is one downside to all this. Getting a federal job can take a great deal of time and effort. Youâ€™ll want to read everything, and follow the directions to the letter. But you can do it!
