When your application is ready, you’ll be sent from USAJOBS to the agency application system and then you can submit your application. Before you submit, you may need to complete other agency-required steps such as a questionnaire or uploading additional documents.
The time it takes to submit an application depends on the job you are applying for and the agency’s requirements.
You can check the status of your application in your USAJOBS account. When the agency receives your application, the status will change to â€œReceivedâ€ which usually happens within a few hours after completion of your application. You may also receive an email confirmation from the agency application system, but not all agencies send emails.
