Abstract: Applying for federal positions can be confusing and cumbersome, which can keep great candidates from getting Federal positions. This webinar provides a hiring manager's perspective on how to successfully interpret an announcement in the USAJobs system. You will learn how to search for job vacancy announcements and compare your experience against the requirements of the announcement. We will talk through different types of job postings as examples. You will walk away with a better understanding of how to interpret an announcement and craft your resume/CV in response.

Keywords: hiring, USAJobs, resumes
