Making the Cert List: Navigating the Federal Job Application Process This webinar is part of the Region One Insights Webinar Series

Making the Cert List: Navigating the Federal Job Application Process

The following is a typical scenario. You find a vacancy announcement for a librarian position in the federal government. You think you’re the ideal candidate and submit your application with great anticipation. Two weeks later, you receive an email from USAStaffing stating that you are not qualified for the position and that you were not referred to the selecting official for an interview. How can this be?

The perception is there is a trick to landing a job in the federal government, because applicants who seemingly have the right qualifications and experience to perform a job are often not referred for further consideration. There is no trick to making the referral list, commonly known as the “cert list;” however, applicants do need to understand how HR specialists evaluate resumes.

In this webinar, which will include an interactive component, you will gain a better understanding of the federal job application review process and learn to maximize your chances of making the cert list.

The objectives for this session are that attendees will:
- Gain a better understanding of how HR specialists in the federal government review job applications.
- Learn to maximize chances to getting an interview
