  • How to Apply

    1. Create a USAJOBS profile

      First, create and complete your USAJOBS profile.

      With a USAJOBS profile, you can save jobs, automate job searches, and manage everything you need to complete your application, including resumes and required documents.

    2. Search for FRTIB jobs

      Review current FRTIB job openings

      Once you create your profile, you can search for jobs.
      It's best to sign into your profile before searching. Why?
      We can use your information to improve your job search results.
      You can also use filters such as location, salary, work schedule or agency to narrow your results.

    3. Review job announcement

      If you find a job you're interested in, read the entire announcement to determine if you're eligible and meet the qualifications.
      It's important to read the announcement because there are required qualifications you must meet and include in your application.

    4. Prepare your application in USAJOBS

      Read the How to Apply section of the job announcement before starting your application. Click Apply, and we'll walk you through a five-step process where you'll attach a resume and any required documents. During the application process, you can review, edit and delete your information. We'll automatically save your progress as you go so that you won't lose any changes.

    5. Submit application to FRTIB

      When your application is ready, you'll be directed from USAJOBS to the FRTIB system to 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 depends on the job you are applying for and the hiring agency's requirements. You can check your application using the Track This Application link in your USAJOBS profile or contact the hiring agency listed on the job announcement.
