30 Fastest Hiring Federal Agencies of 2009

30 Fastest Hiring Federal Agencies of 2009

Kyle Stone | Editor

Federal agencies fill job openings like the private industry: most agencies are responsible for their own hiring actions, and often deploy “hiring sprees” in order to fill a large number of essential positions rapidly.

Important tip for federal job seekers: keep on track of the agencies that hire the most, and what positions they are hiring for. Since the federal government keeps track of the job vacancies at each agency, we can give you an accurate picture of where the most job openings are.

    To Justdoit, I am a DVOP - Disabled Veterans Employment Specialist in Evansville, Indiana. We have seen countless jobs posted and referred many of our Vet Clients to these positions. I have also seen several of them hired. Mostly at the nearby VA Clinic. Those hired were mostly women for clerical type positions. They did not have a lot of education, but had a good work history. They also followed our tip on filling out the application portion with a complete detail of job duties and types of equipment used. On a Government Application More is better! Be very detailed and give your complete work history even if you have to type it out on additional sheets of paper. And answer those KSA"s completely (Knowledge, Skills & Abilities)! Just being a disabled vet or having a higher education is not going to cut it. If your work history is spotty or you have had some problems with employers this can come back to haunt you and keep them from considering you as a viable candidate for the position. You may want to consider finding a civilian job and getting some time on the job 2 to 5 years before you apply again. And watch your attitude, check it at the door. You don't have any right to a government job. If you come off that way it will cost you every time. Its a privilege not a right. They are looking for people that feel that way. Good Luck!

    I don't know why there is all this hype about federal job openings. There are over 15,000 listed right now on USAJOBS website and most of those openings are just resume grabbers according to more than one hiring official. I have applied to several job openings that I felt I was extremely qualified for, received a high rating on all of them, had my package forwarded to a hiring official, but I haven't heard anything. When I called to ask about the status, i was informed that another candidate had been selected. They said that maybe a veteran with preference has been selected, (I am a veteran with preference), then I was told they may be a veteran with greater than a 30% disability ( I have greater than a 30% disability rating), an finally they said that the education of the selected member may have exceeded the minimum requirement (in each case a BS was required and I hold an MS). So, I would not get your hopes up very much unless you are considering a GS5 or GS7 position that is unless you are an engineer, medical, accountant, scientist, or in the environmental or law enforcement field. The above mentioned persons are already the people with employment. Many of the jobs are for persons that are under 37 (those with prisons, ATF, Homeland, etc...). I haven't given up. I will continue to apply and hopefully I get the call. But, for those of you seeking employment in a hurry I need to let you know that hiring process is slow at best. From date of announcement closing they take up to 120 days to call potential hires and from there it could be another couple months. So, if you are applying for a government job make sure you have something to cover you during your new job search.

    Though I have lived in the Netherlands for almost 10 years I am now divorced and actively seeking full time work here and in the USA, willing to travle if necessary. Most of my work experience since the 1970s has been as a teacher of the performing arts and English for the last three years and I have also worked in advertising sales, the helping professions as well as being an excellent networker/people person. Would you please give me an idea of what govt. work might be available for me to apply for. I have a BA in theater arts from San Francisco State University and certificates as a substitute teacher and in the Dutch language.

    From my experience, Welders are often included in the Sheet Metal Mechanic areas. Do take a look at the Dept. of the Navy jobs. or USAJOBS. A few welder jobs exist.
