Navigating Government Hiring

By Jennifer Tucker  

On September, 24, 2016 and October 1, 2016, I presented workshops on the Federal hiring process for, a non-profit that provides job search skills education for people in the Washington D.C. area.

I have posted my slides for the two sessions below. They reflect my own experience applying for Federal jobs, and my experience as a government hiring manager. Different agencies, HR professionals, and hiring managers approach the process differently, so follow any guidelines given to you for specific positions.

Finally, these slides reflect my experience and beliefs only, and do not reflect the opinions of the USDA, Agricultural Marketing Service and/or the National Organic Program.

Navigating Government Hiring – Part 1: This session focused on walking through the job announcement process and provided an overview of Federal resume tips.

Navigating Government Hiring – Part 2: This session focused on the Federal interview process, and what to expect in a panel interview session.

Best of luck in your government job search!
