USAJob's basic search engine has a keyword box and a location box. Use the keyword box to type in job title, agency or skills, depending on what your search parameters encompass. Type in city, state, ZIP code or country name into the location box to further define search returns. USAJobs then pulls up a list or job openings that you can apply to.

The advanced search engine has additional features to limit search results, including three keyword boxes, salary grade ranges, job category, department name and work schedule (such as temporary, part-time or full-time). After this, click on the Search Jobs button to see results. Note that there are job lists available to the general public, and others that are limited to federal employees.

To apply for a job through USAJobs, create a personal account and follow the instructions for applying that are attached to each entry. You can view your application status via your account.
