The Top 9 Websites for Government Employees and Job-Seekers

Currin Berdine | GovCentral

In this day and age, seemingly everything is on the internet. The Federal Government, and in particular the Obama Administration, is actively trying to keep up with the online trends. In their efforts to be more transparent and accessible, they are updating services on .gov sites, creating Department and agency blogs, and more.

Further, because of the decline in the print newspaper, it is essential to utilize the best online resources to get the most important up-to-date news and information.

In these lists, GovCentral outlined the most useful, interesting and worthwhile sites for you to explore and discover. We don’t want you to leave GovCentral, but we aim to provide you, our user, with the most valuable tools out there – even if we send you somewhere else.

    If a job seeker does not have internet access in todays economy then they probably don't belong working in the federal government. Knowing how to use a computer is not essential for every career. But come on people!!! lol Not having internet access is like saying I flunked out of high school and can barely read. hah

    The comment above to the effect that Federal job seekers are "required to submit your application through USAJobs," is incorrect. Depending on the announcing agencies' application polices and procedures, applying through USAJOBS may (stress, may) be one way of applying, but OPM requires that alternatives to on-line application must be made available to applicants lacking internet access also. Many agencies, in addition, still use a hard copy application process, and are not equipped to handle automated submissions. This is why it's so important that applicants carefully read announcements to determine just what application venues are being used in any given announcement. The Federal hiring process is decentralized, with each agency being given wide latitude as to how they solicit applications, while OPM regulations specify what items must be addressed in any announcement (e.g., qualifications, how to apply, etc.), and requiring that announcements for competitive service vacancies be publicized to the general public on USAJOBS.
