The Office of Personnel Management has revamped federal job application tools on the USAJobs website as part of a redesign of the government’s online recruitment portal.
OPM said Wednesday new site enhancements are meant to help agency job seekers to review requirements for a position, manage resumes and track the progress of their applications throughout the process.
“By streamlining the USAJobs process, we will also improve our ability to attract the best and brightest to apply for jobs in the federal workforce,” said acting OPM Director Beth Cobert.
OPM also plans to integrate new government web design standards created by the U.S. Digital Service and the General Services Administration‘s 18F organization into the website.
The agency is testing additional tools designed to increase the site’s usability and will unveil other upgrades on a rolling basis throughout the year.
