On September 11, 2006 HHS Careers, the online job application system for the Department of Health and Human Services, was integrated with the Office of Personnel Management's USAJOBS website. This integration will make it easier and more efficient for you to apply for Federal positions and manage your online applications.
This process will allow you, as an applicant, to:
To prepare for this change and familiarize yourself with the new process, you are encouraged to create an account on USAJOBS. If you have not applied for a job using USAJOBS, then you will need to create a new account. Your USAJOBS user account will consist of personal information, your user ID and password, and at least one résumé. If you have already created your account on USAJOBS, then you do not need to re-register.
Quick Tips on the USAJOBS Registration Process:
1. Access USAJOBS
2. Establish Account Information
IMPORTANT: You must use the same social security number, first name and last name you entered when registering with HHS Careers. For example, if your first name is "Michael," but you entered "Mike" as your first name when registering with HHS Careers, then you must enter "Mike" as your first name when creating your account on USAJOBS.
After providing basic information, you will be taken to your new personal page on USAJOBS where you can choose to create a new résumé and/or set up email notification agents to alert you of new jobs posted to USAJOBS.
3. Create and Store a Résumé
Résumés created on USAJOBS can be used when applying for other jobs within the Federal government. As an added benefit, you can store up to five résumés on USAJOBS, thus providing you the ability to customize your résumé to the job you are applying for.
Note: you can use your résumé stored in HHS Careers to create your USAJOBS résumé. If you do not have a copy of your résumé stored in HHS Careers, then you have until 5pm Eastern Time, September 8, 2006 to access HHS Careers in order to retrieve and copy your résumé. After 5pm Eastern Time, September 8, 2006, access to your résumé in all of the HHS Careers systems will no longer be available.
4. Create a Job Search Agent (Email notification)
Any email notification preferences you may have set up in HHS Careers will be discontinued after 5pm Eastern Time, September 8, 2006.
