the end of the Qualification and Evaluation section of the job announcement to
preview the online questions that you will answer in Step 4.
You may wish to customize your USAJOBS resume to ensure
that it supports your responses to these questions.

Step 3: Click on the "APPLY ONLINE" button to the right of this announcement.
Follow USAJOBS' instructions to access your account and submit your resume.
You will be redirected to the Hiring Management website to
complete the application process. If this is your first time in Hiring
Management, you will be asked to answer questions related to your eligibility
for Federal employment. You will be able to update this information and save
it to our account for future announcements.

Step 4: Once you have completed the eligibility questions, you will be taken
directly to the vacancy application questions. Answer all questions honestly
and thoroughly.

Step 5: Hiring Management offers three options that will electronically attach
your documentation to your online application once you finish answering the
questions in the job announcement.

(1) You may select a document that you have already uploaded to USAJOBS for a
previous announcement.

(2) You may electronically upload a document directly from your computer to
your application. Be certain to review your complete
application for confirmation the document uploaded and click on "Finished" to
be returned to USAJOBS.

(3) You may follow the "Faxing Supporting Documentation" instructions within
the online application, which will provide the necessary cover sheets for each

them individually, only the last one sent will be visible in our system.

the last one sent will overwrite the first one. Finally, if
you upload a document, e.g. your undergraduate transcript, do not also fax
that same document (or fax another undergraduate transcript), because
whichever one you send last will be the only one that is visible in our
system. If you have any questions about this information,
please contact the person on this announcement BEFORE the closing date.
