USAJobs Update: Week Three

August, 25, 2011

Welcome back to CareerPro Global’s weekly update on the site, version 3. If you have been following along, you know that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is giving USAJobs an overhaul, with the final results on display come October. They have promised us weekly updates, which I am happy to pass on to you.  Here is week three’s update:

“Account Profile features – employment eligibility

“Have you ever applied for a job only to find you were not eligible to even be considered? The new and improved USAJOBS has tried to make it easier for job seekers and potential applicants to identify those Job Opportunity Announcements that they are eligible to apply for by enhancing the applicant’s account profile. By logging into USAJOBS and correctly answering the questions about yourself – such as whether or not you have served in the Armed Forces or previously held a federal position – before you begin your search, the results will be refined to only those for which you are eligible to apply. So, take the time to build your profile before you search and good luck!”

What does that mean for you and me?  USAJobs will begin to capture additional information from you in your profile. If you do a job search while you’re logged into your account, you will be shown which for vacancies you are eligible. Pretty neat. This may lead to a few less disappointed people who think they have found the job of their dreams–only to realize (sometimes too late) that they do not fit the eligibility requirements.
