Everyone has hopefully heard that USAJobs is THE site to find job openings within the federal government. Because so many government entities post their jobs here, the number of positions may be overwhelming to some job seekers, which is why many groups have created their own careers site.

In an effort to streamline the job search process for qualified health care providers, VA Careers has its own site as well. We have included our top needs in easy to find locations, formatted the job descriptions to be easier to read and provided useful tools and maps to allow for search by city and state.

Now USAJobs has incorporated an additional feature with a new map search (BETA). You can easily find openings across the globe for all agencies.

I encourage all health care providers seeking a career at VA to continue to use VA Careers for your research. Once you find a position of interest and click the ‘Apply’ button, you will be re-directed to USAJobs. You will need to create an account and follow the job application instructions.

Veteran health care providers are encouraged to use the resources at VAforvets.va.gov, and explore the job search tools available on USAJobs and fedshirevets.gov.
