USAJOBS.gov offers applicants a variety of ways to search the database of current job openings within the Department of the Navy (DON). No matter how applicants search, they can refine their results in a variety of ways including agency, job categories/series, grade, salary, work schedule or location. This helps applicants narrow their search to find specific jobs:
- Agency: Under advanced search, be sure to select the Department of the Navy to search all DON open positions. If you have a few agencies in mind, refine your search by selecting one or more agencies or offices.
- Job Categories/Series: Job categories or series are organized according to series number (eg. 0803 Safety Engineering, 2210 Information Technology Management, or 1105 Purchasing Series). Refine your results by clicking a specific occupation series or drill down into a specific occupation.
- Grade: Selecting a GS grade level is an easy way to focus on positions that match your experience level. Be realistic in your expectations, you may be hired at a lower salary and then advance rapidly.
- Salary: You can narrow your search if you are looking for positions within a specific salary range.
- Work schedule and work type: Be sure to select what type of work schedule and type that best aligns with your preferences. The most common position is full-time and permanent, meaning the position is working 40 hours a week. Term or temporary assignments may last a few months or even a few years. Although short-term, these positions can give you great experience and may open doors to other government positions.
- Pathways: Student or recent graduate jobs can be found by selecting Student Pathways Programs in the work schedule filter. More information about this program can be found at DON Pathways Programs.
- Location: Look for jobs according to your geographical region by typing in your zip code and selecting a radius of 5 to 200 miles on the results page. You can also choose a specific city, state or country in the advanced search.
