USAJobs.gov will transition to a new system October 6-12, 2011. During this time, the ability to conduct job searches, apply for jobs or receive application status updates will not be possible. Employers will not be able to post any new jobs. Even after the transition is complete, there may be sporadic, unannounced shutdowns.
For those applying for U.S. Department of State opportunities, we encourage you to complete your application prior to October 6, if possible, to reduce the possibility of system problems preventing an on-time submission. At this point, we do not anticipate a need for extending any application deadlines. However, we will monitor the situation and keep you informed of any changes.
Thank you for your interest in our careers.
