Innovation as a beacon for government

I joined OIT, one of the largest federal tech workforces, driven by the belief that the innovation we achieve here could serve as a beacon for the rest of government. Whether we’re setting new standards in compensating our technologists or pioneering first-of-their-kind talent development programs, we are setting the bar for putting people first.

Working at VA for all the right reasons

I never expected that I was going to work for the Government. I came from private sector tech doing product design and software development, and I joined what I thought was going to be a 1-year fellowship. What I found here is that everyone is working at a place like VA for the right reason.

Second to none

The mission of VA is second-to-none for technical people seeking a career where they are applying their skills to services that matter in the lives of Veterans, their families, their caregivers, and their survivors. Part of modernizing and making an organization that people want to join is to continue building an innovative, diverse, and inclusive workplace.

Employment

Benefits of Federal Service

Working for the Federal Government provides more than competitive pay, generous benefits, job security, and a chance to advance your career. Eligibility for benefits depends on the type of position you hold and whether your position is full-time, part-time or intermittent.

Getting started

First Time Applying for a Federal Job?

Applying for a Federal Government job may look intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Follow these best practices for submitting your federal resume.

You must be a U.S. citizen to apply for positions within the Office of Information and Technology, and selectees are subject to a background or suitability investigation. Designated or random drug testing may be required. If selected, you will be required to complete an online onboarding process and may be required to serve a probationary period.

VA encourages persons with disabilities to apply, including those eligible for hiring under 5 CFR 213.3102(u), Schedule A, Appointment of persons with disabilities [i.e., intellectual disabilities, severe physical disabilities, or psychiatric disabilities], or Disabled Veterans with a compensable service-connected disability of 30 percent or more. Contact the Agency Contact for information on how to apply under this appointment authority via the Selective Placement Coordinator.

Our job announcements require a complete application, which includes a resume, transcript, and any additional documents required by the USAJobs announcement.

One size doesn’t fit all for a federal resume. As with any job application, you should tailor your resume to the position’s requirements. Federal resumes also require additional information and may be lengthier than traditional resumes. Your federal resume should include the following:

  • Job announcement number, job title, and job grade of the job you’re applying for
  • Your full name, mailing address, day and evening phone numbers, and personal email address
  • Country of citizenship
  • Any special hiring authorities (e.g., Veteran, Peace Corps/AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteer, Schedule A)

  • All relevant work experience, including key work, volunteer experiences, academic accomplishments, extra-curricular activities, and any unique skills. Be sure to list how and why these skills have been used in specific instances.
  • Your current supervisor’s information, if available, to contact
  • Any job-related training or certificates and licenses
  • Job-related honors, awards, accomplishments, leadership activities, memberships, or publications.
