AFTER YOU APPLY
Sometimes it can seem like your Federal government job application goes into a black hole. It’s an especially easy assumption to make if, like many applicants, you don’t hear back from anyone for a while. The truth is you've got a lot of competition out there and with hundreds—sometimes several hundreds—of applicants for every goverment job, it takes time to get through them all. The good news is that Federal agencies are working to streamline the hiring process and increase transparency about where your application is in the process.
