Are you a Veteran looking to land a Federal Job? Did you know you may have a preference in being hired over all non-Veteran applicants? There is an ocean of information out there on the federal hiring process. Knowing and understanding the preference eligibilities that will float your name to the top of the Certificate/Referral list thereby being the first name a Selecting Official/Hiring Manager looks at, is the most important part of the hiring process for a Veteran. This is a small but extremely important piece of application puzzle. Your name at the top of the competitive certificate/referral list guarantees you must be considered before all non-preference eligible candidates when a Hiring Manager is trying to fill a position. This book will show you how to secure the Veterans' Preference eligibilities you have earned and rightly deserve. Whether you are about to be released from active duty, retired Military, or you have been out for a while, this book will help guide you through the Veterans' Preference eligibilities piece of the application process. This is information especially helpful if you separated from the Military a while ago. I will discuss the federal hiring process, the important parts of your DD214, and I will walk you through the section of USA Jobs where Veterans' Preference is claimed. The reason you should read this book is simple. Having all this information in one place and explaining it in terms that are easy to understand, will be a tremendous advantage to you when applying to federal jobs. You having that advantage is what gives this book its value.
