 Step 2: Create a and USAJOBS Profile

Create Your Account

Beginning on 25 February 2018, USAJOBS implemented new login procedures. USAJOBS users will need to first create a account before logging into USAJOBS and completing their USAJOBS profile. This method increases the security of the USAJOBS system and allows individuals to use a single sign-in for multiple government online systems.

  • To create a account go to and click the “Create a account” link near the Sign In Button.
  • Then select the red continue button.
  • Select the Create an Account box.

To establish your new account you will need

Internet, and

Email (use the same email address for both and USAJOBS). It is recommended that you do NOT use a .mil, .edu or other gov’t email address as this will delay your password and login notifications.

Phone (you will use this to receive the system generated security code for each time you need to sign into USAJOBS). If you are using an international phone number (excluding Canada and Mexico), you must be able to receive text messages at that number.

  • Enter in an email address. Then follow the prompts sent via email to confirm your email.
  • Enter in a password and a phone number and method (call or text) to receive a sign in security code.
  • Type in your one-time security code and follow the prompts.
  • When completed it will prompt you to continue to USAJOBS. NOTE: Future logins to USAJOBS will require your email address, password and a one-time security code (received via text or phone call).

For step-by-step screenshots of the above process check out our New USAJOBS Sign In Method Presentation.
