How Does USAJOBS Work?
USAJOBS 3.0 screens applicants’ responses to questionnaires found in most vacancy announcements in support of the level of experience you claim for specified questions. The responses to these questions and your experience, skills, education, training and accomplishments must be organized and populated throughout your resume. The USAJOBS Resume Builder does have its own limitations and requirements. That means your information must meet the required format and keyword criteria. USAJOBS hosts many thousands of job applications for a variety of federal job openings in the U.S. and around the world. Online formats tend to be restrictive and each has different format requirements. If not written correctly with the required format, your application may end up being automatically rejected.

Encoding Specific Keywords for USAJOBS Resume Database Searches
Our Master Federal Resume Writers know exactly how to encode our clients’ USAJOBS resumes with specific keywords that will generate a hiring authority’s interest in interviewing clients for positions to which they have applied. You might not realize this, but there is a different set of keywords for every job, and there is no way of knowing what those words are. The hiring authority’s first step in processing what can be an overwhelming response to announcements of vacant positions is to digitize applicants’ resumes and run them through keyword-searchable databases, using software to search those databases for specific keywords that relate to job vacancies.
The bottom line is that the federal government is electronically searching for job-specific keywords, and if a resume is not populated with those words, it does not have a chance of being flagged for consideration.
