Jobs with the Federal Government for Veterans | Job Search Radio

On today’s show, I discuss a site that provides information about how to land a job with the US government.

Summary

So, you decided to look for a job with the US federal government. Good decision? Bad decision? That’s for another day.

The site where you find out about jobs is usajobs.gov.

FedsHireVets.gov

There is a site called fedshirevets.gov. If you are a veteran looking for work or a family member of the veteran looking for work, this is a site where you can get a lot of great information to help you.

For example, when you follow the tabs . . . There is a calendar of events where government agencies are doing workshops for veterans or their family or hiring veterans. That’s on the homepage of fedshirevets.gov.

You click along and there’s information for job seekers. Whether you are a family member or a veteran yourself. There is information about the veterans preferences that exist because there are veterans preferences that many agencies have issued since Pres. Obama took office.

There is a list of agencies that exist. There are different types of presentations. There are success stories because, probably it’s it’s not going to be a linear path to you being hired. After all, believe it or not, the government doesn’t hire everyone who wants to work for them!

A shock!

However, the actual site for applying is USA jobs.gov; that’s going to have the list of different sites for the different agencies.

I also want to point out there is a different type of resume needed for a job with the government than with the private sector. I did an interview with someone for the show who is a resume writer for people who work for the federal government.

At the end of the day, is important for you to take advantage of information that is available to you and not going like a rank amateur. You know, thrashing around, learning as you go along in ways that could cost you opportunities that you could have gotten.

Being a professional doesn’t mean that you don’t make mistakes.. The difference is, you are prepared and you take the time to prepare. You may make mistakes but you are further along the process and had you not taken time to prepare.

Great athletes. Pro teams. They will practice, right? They run plays. They deal with different situations and these folks make millions of dollars. It’s a great lesson. You can take from them in practicing and learning what you need to know in order to get this job.

Do you think employers are trying to help you?

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday. The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.
