I want a government job so I can have WLB, but I don’t even know where to start with some of these applications. There’s so many technical terms and names for the steps/levels, requirements, tests, that it’s overwhelming…

Find the job series you’re qualified for and go from there. For me it is 0511 for auditing. Gs7/9 are entry level gs11+ require years of experience in the specific role.

Thanks!

If it’s a federal job make sure you read the announcement completely and follow all the instructions. Fed jobs are competitive and some postings can get thousands or more applicants. Don’t give them any reason to disqualify you.

A lot will say to tailor your resume for each job but when I was applying for fed jobs it just took too long. I apply for the same series and since my experience doesn’t change I used the same resume over and over.

I’d suggest applying for the highest grade you can qualify for. In most cases new employees will be started at step one of the grade they accept. Sometimes you can negotiate a higher step and leave hours, but that is rare and negotiations aren’t typically allowed after you become a federal employee. Some suggest taking what you can just to get your foot in the door but that could bite you if you accept a lower grade than you actually qualify for.

I always suggest applying first thing in the morning, everyday. A lot of the better roles I was targeting would either close after 2-3 days or once they receive 100 applications. Agencies sometimes know when the role will be popular and to avoid thousands of applications they put those limits.

I believe towards the bottom of usajobs there is a link about the sessions on how to do a federal resume. If you have LinkedIn, the VA page does/did videos on Tuesdays about hiring information.

Thx for the info!

The IRS is hiring Revenue Agents. If you have 3-5 yrs of experience in tax accounting or audit you can apply for GS 7 to 13 jobs! Create an account on usajobs.gov and go from there.

Have others found it hard to transition from Audit to Financial Analyst? All the recruiters I’m meeting with are telling me I probably won’t get an interview since they’re looking for someone who’s ready to hit the ground running.
It’s discouraging because I’m a fast learner, and from talking to my friends who are Financial Analysts, it doesn’t seem like what we do is so dissimilar.
