Providing Jobs for Veterans
Veterans make up nearly one-third of the federal workforce. The same holds true at BPA where 30% of employees have prior military service. Many Veterans are hired via regular job announcements. Special hiring consideration may be given to some veterans who are disabled, served on active duty in the Armed Forces during certain specified time periods, or served in certain military campaigns. The following Special Hiring Authorities represent a few of many appointing authorities that many be used for Veterans. Eligibility for appointment under one of these authorities doesn’t mean that you are entitled to be appointed to a position, but knowledge of your eligibility for consideration under each authority can enhance your job search.
Check the vacancy announcements, which should clearly state Who May Apply.
