USAjobs.gov is the website that is required to list all "GS" job postings. I am racking my brain as to what the holdup is for many of the psychology positions that are advertised. Their system is BROKE and I am wondering what we can do to help? I am sitting on a lot of jobs that I was referred to. Some of the job openings are closed as of mid-JUL with still no decision being made. The announcement numbers are still valid, and HR claims they are still looking to fill the position. How does someone need 5 months to make a decision? Where is the disconnect USAjobs?

Good news... SSgt Chris Taylor and the company he is leading is working towards completely overhauling and improving the USAjobs.gov site. He's also a RallyPoint member and he and I have spoken about possible collaboration.

Feel free to reach out to him if you want to give him any more feedback. I don't think he can give you any insight about your current application, but given how he is helping shape the future of USAjobs.gov, it could be worthwhile to give him feedback.

The program manager of USAJobs is truly leading in her efforts to re-imagine how jobseekers and the federal government can come together to find the best possible fit between talent and opportunity. She and her team are working diligently to make it so. My company assisted them with some big data projects and hopefully can contribute to this exceptional project...

This system is a 100% joke. The jobs that are offered take YEARS to apply for and almost NEVER hear back even if you are 100% qualified and available for work.

The jobs are a little misleading. The "Combination of experience and education" really means that you need the education listed AND experience. Many jobs go unfilled due to the lack of a budget.

My experience was completely the opposite. I applied for a position on line, with about a month and a half left of wearing the uniform. Prior to signing out, I had a job and only needed to wait for my permissive TDY to run out.

I totally agree, this system is a COMPLETE JOKE. 99% of the jobs are NOT even available. Many take YEARS to fill. It is an almost completely WORTHLESS resource for job hunters. Unless you know someone IN the organization, it is IMPOSSIBLE to get hired.
