Resources for employees and applicants with disabilities

Job Seekers with Disabilities

The Federal Government is actively recruiting and hiring persons with disabilities. We offer a variety of exciting jobs, competitive salaries, excellent benefits, and opportunities for career advancement.

Hiring people with disabilities into Federal jobs is fast and easy. People with disabilities can be appointed to Federal jobs non-competitively through a process called Schedule A. Learn how to be considered for Federal jobs under the noncompetitive process. People with disabilities may also apply for jobs through the traditional or competitive process.

To find Federal jobs for which you can apply, use USAJOBS (external link) www.usajobs.gov

Learn the difference between the competitive and non-competitive hiring processes, how to use the Schedule A Authority, and how to conduct a job search in the Federal government.

There are two types of hiring processes. In the non-competitive hiring process, agencies use a special authority (Schedule A) to hire persons with disabilities without requiring them to compete for the job. In the competitive process, applicants compete with each other through a structured process.
