Five Tips to Landing a US Government Job Overseas

The federal government has quite a footprint in overseas locations throughout the world. Primarily these jobs are with the DoD, though many components and agencies within the Department are represented. Civilian overseas positions are very attractive for several reasons–chief among them being the opportunity to live and work in interesting and frequently beautiful foreign locales. If you’re reading this post you are likely already drawn to the prospect of an overseas job. Here are five useful tips to ponder your strategy and land a US Government job overseas.
Tip #1: Develop a good idea of what’s in store
Working overseas as a civilian in the US Government offers the advantage of something new and usually expanded entitlements over similar positions in the continental US (CONUS).

5 Secrets to the New USAJOBS Applicant Pages

USAJOBS just got updated as of 8/20! You will see new colors (green, gray and black), new bold screens, flow and even new language, i.e., Unique Hiring Paths, Advancing, Paused, Stopped, Unknown Results + No More Dropdowns! I like the changes and the new language! And I like the all new Homepage / RESULTS page! This is an exciting page! And could be encouraging for federal jobseekers. I especially like the “advancing” list. If a federal jobseeker does apply for 3 to 5 positions per week, they will see a lot of activity in their “advancing” list. This could be a fun screen showing results and a top page transparent support for the federal job search campaign.
