When seeking employment with the federal government, you might be able to leverage military spouse hiring preference to gain a competitive advantage. This "Federal Employment Training for Family Members of Veterans" tutorial, sponsored by Feds Hire Vets, discusses how this preference can help you gain employment. You will learn about the following:
- Who is eligible to receive preference in federal employment
- How you can claim preference
- How you may qualify for a noncompetitive appointment
- Documentation requirements to claim preference
- The federal application process
Once you understand how preference can work for you, get ready to start your federal job search. For information on federal resumes, visit the Federal Employment section of the Employment Readiness lifecycle stage.
