If you have ever thought about working for the Federal government but were unsure of how to apply for a job, you may want to take advantage of an upcoming opportunity. On April 26, 2010 the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) are sponsoring a historic day-long Federal Hiring Event for People with Disabilities in Washington, D.C. Representatives from many agencies will be reviewing resumes prior to the event, and inviting prospective candidates for interviews.
To learn how to participate, review the “Hiring Event Information”, as well as the “Individuals with Disabilities” page, or “Veterans” page on USAJOBS.gov. You must submit your resume to the following email address: Hiringevent@opm.gov no later than March 24, 2010.
Documentation supporting your disability (proof of disability and job readiness certification letters) and/or veteran’s status (VA letter and DD-214) can be provided with your resume, or at the time you are interviewed. To ensure the hiring process moves quickly and to expedite the agency's ability to make tentative offers, you are strongly encouraged to submit your supporting documentation along with your resume.
Disabled veterans with less than a 30 percent rating or with non-service connected disabilities are encouraged to submit their resumes, along with proof of disability and job readiness.
If you need assistance submitting your resume or have any questions regarding this event, including the type of documentation required please forward your inquiry to the following email address: Hiringevent@opm.gov.
You will receive notification that your resume has been received. Agencies will review your resume and any supporting documentation provided. You may be invited to attend the Hiring Event via email for an interview with one or more agencies and for one or more available positions. Applicants who are scheduled for interviews must bring the required documentation to the Hiring Event, if not previously provided.
