Job seekers looking for a Federal job on USAJOBS.gov will find new and improved features this week! These enhancements are the first in a comprehensive redesign that over the coming months will transform USAJOBS.gov into a more user-friendly website.
Beginning this month, improvements to the application process will make applying for Federal jobs easier for applicants. In addition to improving the usability of the website and the overall application system, these changes will increase the number of completed applications agencies receive, which will further enhance a fair and open competition for Federal Government jobs.
To help OPM make changes that will improve the user experience on USAJOBS, we reached out to job seekers from across the United States, engaged human capital and human resources specialists across government, and sought the advice of top usability and design experts. As a result, the updates feature new capabilities, including a tracker that will allow job seekers to follow the progress of their applications from beginning to end. Other enhancements include:
- Reviewing required documents for a desired position without leaving the application process
- Managing resumes or other documents during the application process
- Saving progress on a pending application
