When applying to vacancies online, candidates are required to complete the submission process for each individual job vacancy prior to 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on the closing date indicated on the job announcement.
People First Online Vacancy Submission
Complete and save online the simplified candidate profile. The simplified profile is a condensed candidate’s profile, which gives candidates the ability to provide contact information as well as position preferences, for electronic notification of vacancies matching candidate position preferences. Once a candidate is notified of a vacancy, or finds a vacancy through the search function, the application process for the advertised vacancy can begin. At that point, candidates will be prompted to upload their resumes and any other pertinent documentation, such as documentation supporting Veterans’ Preference eligibility. Candidate profiles can be edited at any time prior to each submission and will automatically populate when applying to a specific position. Remember to review your application for accuracy. Once submitted, an application can not be edited. After applying to one or more job vacancies, all submitted applications can be viewed from the Job Management Page by clicking Jobs Applied in the candidate profile. A listing of all the positions to which a candidate has applied will be displayed. Candidates can view and/or print any or all of the submitted applications, although this information is also maintained online.
For assistance in completing the employment application or applying for jobs using the People First system, candidates should call the People First Service Center.
