In several articles I have mentioned that one of the largest employers of part-year workers is the federal government. This may also be true of state governments, but I haven’t gotten that far with my research. There are numerous books and websites that can help you with the nuances of actually GETTING these jobs – but here is how you FIND them.
All positions are posted via the central clearing house website https://www.usajobs.gov
You may enter specific location or keywords right on the front page, but I suggest you simply click “Search Jobs” first. This will bring you to a second screen where you may select a job type.
Have some fun here searching a variety of ways. You can be very targeted by selecting just one job type at a time, or you can go very broad to see not only what types are out there, but where the positions are located.
You must also enter something in the “keyword” field. For this example I simply chose the word “temporary.”
Have some fun searching different ways to see what you find. In the photo below I searched the keyword “temporary,” and also set the job type to Seasonal and Temporary.
Notice that each position shows a pay range, a location (sometimes multiple – click on that link to see where), and additional details including the last one on the right that states who may apply.
Clicking on the job description gets you PAGES of details about qualifications, requirements, etc.
Next week I will provide you with what I can find about the application and selection process.
Go have some fun – see anything that sounds perfect for you?
