Takes a long time to get hired. You put in the app. Take a brief test on your experience. Then you wait a few weeks and hopefully get an interview. The wait is worth it.

You initially have to build a resume on USAJobs, the Government's website. It isn't the same as importing your resume. You can have as many as 5 active resumes on the site, and use any of those to tailor for an opening. (highly recommended). Search for jobs in your geologic area, and by agency if you wish. When you find an opening you'd like to apply to, submit all of the required materiels (i.e. resume, transcripts, DD 214) by the closing date and complete the questionaire. If contacted for an interview, you'll typically be in a pool of 8 -10 finalists for a position. Jobs like these usually close about 30 days before they go to interview and 30 days more before hiring. It would be another 30 days after that to start date. So, for a job beginning in May 1, start looking for postings as early as January.
