The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is committed to improving the hiring process for applicants interested in working for the Federal Government. One area in which applicants express frustration, is having to complete numerous versions of applications due to differing vacancy announcements for identical positions. With this in mind, I directed my staff to develop standardized vacancy announcements for various entry level positions. I am pleased to announce the availability of these new announcement templates for the following positions: Secretary, GS-318-05; Accountant, GS-510-05; and Accounting Technician, GS-525-05 occupations.
These templates may be accessed through USA Staffing and USAJOBS. Copies of the announcements are also attached. Use of the templates is optional; however, we believe such standardization should reduce applicant frustration and improve the hiring process. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Mr. Daniel Fusco, Manager, Recruiting, Examining and Assessment Group at 202-606-2226 or Daniel.Fusco@opm.gov.
