Applicant Eligibility

Each job opportunity announcement will state: Who may be considered, who may apply, or define an Area of Consideration.

Agencies typically seek candidates from one of the three following eligibility categories:

1)Candidates with no prior federal employment.

  • Non-Citizens
  • U. S. Citizens
  • All Sources or Public

2) Candidates who have “status” based on current or previous federal employment or merit promotion candidates.

3) Candidates that qualify for a special non-competitive hiring authority established by law or executive order.
