The past couple months have certainly been a challenge. We’ve all been tested in so many different ways. The tragic loss of life, missed graduations and weddings, and difficulty finding work; it seems COVID-19 has not spared any aspect of our daily lives. One of the silver linings has been seeing people come together and step up-- especially our first responders, medical professionals, teachers, essential workers and tons of others who are part of this fight.
If you are looking for work, whether as a military veteran, student, recent college graduate, a professional who wants a change in careers, or recently laid off, the Federal government is still hiring across a wide range of careers fields right now including public affairs, skilled labor, and supply chain management.
Here’s some tips to get started:
Start by searching for careers based on your area of expertise whether it is nursing, medicine, carpentry, information technology, or engineering--there are open positions for nearly every background!
Only apply to positions you are eligible for. Do this by searching for open positions available to the hiring paths you fit in (i.e. student, U.S. citizen, veteran, disabled, or recent college graduate). You might find that you fit into multiple hiring path categories, which is great because it gives you more opportunities to apply to jobs.
