Federal Jobs Application Advice, LLC

DISCLAIMER:

While Federal Jobs Application Advice, LLC attempts to cover material which is both applicable and helpful to the largest cross section of Federal White Collar positions (professional, technical, administrative, and clerical), this guide does not attempt to cover the full array of all applicant situations. Additionally, this guide contains extremely useful information and links regarding Federal Blue Collar positions (Federal Wage System occupations: Trade, Craft, or Labor Job Families and Occupations, such as Painters, Carpenters, Plumbers, Electricians, Maintenance Workers etc.) However, the examples used in this guide focus on white collar positions.

The OPM uses many different avenues for providing descriptions of the work involved by an occupational series. Therefore, the OPM may not provide direct and specific series and grade defining occupational information for some occupational series. In those cases, the OPM may offer series and grade defining information through OPM Guides and/or Standards which might typically be applied to a different occupational series (or a combination of different occupational series).

This guide does not attempt to provide career counseling, employment services, or motivational services.

The knowledge Federal Jobs Application Advice, LLC has gained of the federal hiring policies, procedures, and practices have contributed greatly to the exceptional quality of the information presented in this guide. However, due to the variety of differences between agencies and due to the unknown nature of the applicant’s background, Federal Jobs Application Advice, LLC can make no guarantee that the advice presented in this guide will result in the subscriber’s application package being forwarded as “Best Qualified”, or that by following the advice presented in this guide an applicant will receive an offer of federal employment.
